Eco-Dying with Nature (contact printing with plants)
Sally Fica

Eco-printing is a technique which involves bundling leaves and paper and then boiling the bundles in water with vinegar. Using flowers, leaves and rusted objects we’ll dye paper using organic “dye”, such as dried blueberries and onion skins. You’ll need to bring a large baggy with leaves, pine needles, rusty objects, flowers (and any thing else we can flatten that will make color or an interesting pattern) to work with. sally.fica@sjfstudios. com (201) 741-1773 $5 fee to teacher for materials - Class includes all materials.
