Fusion of Botanical Print and Natural Dyeing.
I am SO behind on updating my eco printing blog! Better late than never… I attended two wonderful eco printing workshops this past summer and fall. The first was with Irit Dulman, a master eco printer who lives in Israel, at the Pacific Northwest Art School on Whidbey Island in Washington in June 2016. She’s a master eco printer with the artistic eye of a designer, who seems to keep experimenting with new techniques.
I was able to combine my trip to Washington with a mini-college roommate reunion, since one lives only about an hour north of the art school. Here are some images of the workshop. Click on an image to see a larger view. If you ever have the opportunity to take a workshop with Irit, go for it! I learned so much.
Some of my results:
Natural dyes: Logwood, Indigo, Cochineal and Weld
Leaves: Smokebush, Japanese maple, Sumac, Horse chestnut, etc.
