Ecodyeing Silk Scarves Workshop
September 29, 2019 • 9:00am–4:00pm
Leach Botanical Garden, Portland, OR


Botanical printing uses historical methods to capture colors, textures, and shapes found in nature – resulting in stunning plant portraits on fabric. Leaves are layered onto natural fabrics, tightly bundled, then steamed or boiled. This environmentally gentle process permanently transfers botanical pigments without synthetic dyes, inks or paints.

Textile artist Anna Zell will lead you step-by-step through the eco-printing process. At the end of the day, you’ll take home your own eco-printed silk noil and either crepe de chine or charmeuse silk scarf. You’ll also be given a dyeing kit and the knowledge to make more, for yourself or as spectacular gifts for others. (See Anna’s work at www.facebook.com/annazelldesigns). Cost: $125

Location: Manor House & Terrace, Leach Botanical Garden, 6704 SE 122nd Ave., Portland, OR 97236, 503-823-1671. https://www.leachgarden.org/
