Eco printing is kind of a natural dyeing technique that uses leaves, flowers, and other plant materials to create patterns and colors on fabric or paper. The process involves bundling plant materials and fabric together, then steaming or boiling the bundle to transfer the color and patterns from the plants to the fabric. The exact method and materials used can vary depending on the artist, but the result is a unique, one-of-a-kind print that captures the beauty of nature.  It also allows artists to work in harmony with the seasons, using materials that are grown, found, shared, or responsibly foraged. Eco-printing not only links contemporary fiber art to respect for natural environments but also to the recovery of lost dye- and plant-knowledge, and an appreciation for the creative process carried out from the heart.

Make your own tote bag using flowers, leaves and other natural materials to make a botanical collage. We will then use various techniques to transfer the botanical dyes onto the bag.
