Eco-Printing Workshop with Mary Delano
August 20, 2023 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm
Record your visit to McLaughlin Garden by printing our plants on fabric! Maine fiber artist Mary DeLano will teach you the art and craft of Eco–printing; a process where plant materials are placed on specially treated fabric and then steamed to release the pigments in the plants, leaving realistic prints of the plants on the fabric. During this full day class, participants will learn about which plants print reliably and will have a chance to experiment with other plants. Students will take home one silk scarf and 1 ¾ yards of printed fabric, including silk, cotton and linen.
Seating is limited. RSVP for class is required (see below). Payment must be received within 7 business days of RSVP to hold your seat. Checks can be mailed to: McLaughlin Garden P.O.Box 492 South Paris, ME 04281 or call 207-743-8820. The workshop fee is $135 for non-members, and $125 for members. Registration closes on August 26th. No refunds will be offered after that time unless the class is cancelled.
