Participants are introduced to the sustainable process of printing leaves onto fabric also referred to as contact or bundling printing. Images are extracted from plants and transferred to fabric through a steaming process. As the chemicals interact with different types of textiles, the images may respond differently as they join with the fabric. This workshop will help participants reconstruct this process on their own. Each student will go home with a silk scarf or a wall hanging as well as a booklet of instructions and resources.
