Eco printing is a process of direct contact printing using leaves, plants and heat to transfer image and color onto fabric. This introductory course covers fabric preparation, working with mordants, tannins, modifiers and plant selection. After sampling different techniques and methods, students will print a silk scarf as their final project. All materials are provided. Students should bring rubber gloves.

Patricia Spangler is a full-time artisan and teacher at The Language of Leaves in Asheville. She has studied with internationally acclaimed eco printers and dyers and participates in a number of juried art shows in Western North Carolina.
