Description

Anna Zell is the instructor for this one-day workshop. Botanical printing use historical methods to capture colors, textures, and shapes found in nature – resulting in stunning plant portraits on fabric. 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 botanical printing process. At the end of the day, you’ll take home your own printed silk noil samples and a crepe de chine silk scarf. You’ll have the knowledge to make more for yourself or as spectacular gifts for others. Materials fee $30 is paid directly to the instructor. Maximum class size is 12.

Photo of Anna ZellAbout the Instructor: The colors, textures and shapes found in nature have always filled me with appreciation and delight. The discovery of botanical printing was the perfect fit for me. It combines my background in apparel design and love of textiles with my interest in gardening. I don’t go anywhere without my pruning shears these days!  See Anna’s work at www.facebook.com/annazelldesigns.
