Botanically Eco-Dye Shirts
Saturday, September 29, 2018 • 9:00am-3:30pm
Leach Botanical Garden, Portland, OR

Traditional dye methods and contact botanical printing capture colors, textures, and shapes found in nature – resulting in stunning plant portraits. 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 creations so you can wear your art.
