Eco-Print: Watershed- $75
Nature inspires people in many ways. Learn how to imbed the natural pigments found only in nature into fabric. This new ACP workshop at the Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed will begin with an introduction to the possibilities of creating natural dyed fabrics. Participants will look at the endless opportunities for personal expression and then venture outdoors for short Naturalist-led walk on the Watershed Reserve trails to collect leaves, nuts, berries, bark, flowers and other items for use in the studio – forming a dye bath and creating “prints” to make one-a-kind wearable art! Have fun discovering the surprising colors and saturation of certain natural elements. A materials fee of $20.00 paid directly to the instructor will cover all supplies including two scarves or bandanas.
Bring a bag lunch to enjoy during a brief break. Participants should wear comfortable shoes and bring items such as onion skins, berries, richly colored eucalyptus and any other botanicals for experimentation.
