Let’s go beyond eucalyptus! In this workshop students will learn how to imprint on silk, linen and wool fabric. Depending on the season of the workshop, students will print madrone, english walnut, chestnut, manzanita, three types of eucalyptus, smoke bush, redwood, Japanese maple, pecan, catalpa, white alder and more. Dye experiments will include rosemary, cineria, poke berry, manzanita, mountain misery and others, again, depending on the season of the workshop. Sharon will also show students how to use a dye blanket and use leaves as a resist to create a completely different look. This workshop is a fully immersive experience and students will leave with the culmination of Sharon’s years of knowledge and experimentation.
