Learn to create beautiful prints on fabric using flowers, leaves, roots, and bark through a simple steaming process as well as Hapa Zome – “flower pounding.” Class begins with an hour foraging around Rogers Center to identify native plants used in transferring pigment to cloth – many of which can be found in your own backyard! Dried summer flowers from “dye gardens” may also be used to add flourish. An overview of mordants and modifiers will include an explanation of why they are necessary for bonding images on cloth and color enhancements. Participants should wear long-sleeved shirts and pants; aprons and “non-precious” clothing are suggested in case of staining. All materials included, including a take-home fabric bag. Recommended for ages 8 and older.
