Monoprint Resist with Plant dyes

We will explore the dye resist technique “itajime”, using this folding and binding method to create your own scarf. Participants will gather a plant leaf, frond or some material and create a monoprint resist using plant dyed wood blocks. The dyed blocks will transfer through the layers of silk, making a repeated pattern with a subtle and surprising botanical pattern, as we over-dye with natural dyes in our workshop. Please wear clothing that can get stained, and bring rubber gloves, a notebook, and an apron.
