Join Juniper Caldera (she/they) and Linden (He/they) for a day spent learning to use two different printing methods that allow you to capture the beauty of plants: ecoprinting and solar printing. Ecoprinting is a method that prints fabric using natural dyes found within the plants themselves. Solar printing harnesses the power of sunlight to make prints using a light-reactive dye. Participants will make a solar printed bandana and an ecoprinted silk scarf during the skill share.
