Over this 2-day workshop, participants will discover the magic of ecoprinting – coaxing beautiful contact prints onto paper and fabric – using water, heat, leaves and other easily sourced ingredients. We will explore different bundling techniques, consider the variables that can affect the outcome, discuss mordants to persuade color onto cellulose fabrics and use a brayer technique for capturing the beauty of a leaf. Then, using the fruits of our exploration, we will make a wrapped felt book that will be bound together using gathered sticks and a very simple binding. Participants will be able to use bits of lace and fabric, beads and stitching to embellish the covers of their books.
