Eco-printing or sometimes called eco-bundling will be taught using a variety of materials. Eco-printing, whether on fabric or paper, is the transfer of pigments from natural plant materials in the form of mark-making. This process uses no synthetic chemicals. Students will be wrapping their own silk bundle and depending on what they put in them, the results will be unique and interesting. While the bundles are soaking, a paper demonstration of eco-printing will be given.
The eco-printed silks will be used as one of the materials in exploring in encaustic.
Whether you are new to encaustic or have had encaustic experience – working with the designs you have created will energize your creativity.
Open time will be used to experiment with the process. Hand-outs of the process will be available. There will be a 30 minute clean-up at 3, taking the class to 3:30. No prior experience necessary in eco-printing or in encaustic application. All materials will be supplied. There will be no scheduled time taken for lunch, bring snacks and take breaks when you need to.
Work clothes or an apron is suggested.
Limited to 8 people.
