2-Day or 1-Day Botanical Print Workshop:   Saturday and Sunday May 6th - May 7th  10:00 - 5:00pm.  Taught by Award Winning Seattle Fiber Artist, Hilary Hutchinson Grant!
Hilary Hutchinson Grant has studied the botanical and ECO printing techniques of fiber artist Kristy Kun of Oregon and Olga Kazanskaya of Russia and in June she will be taking a 5 day workshop with Irit Dulman of Israel. She has been experimenting with various techniques of eco and botanical printing and is here to teach us how to obtain beautiful clear and crisp leaf prints using natural and acid dyes as well as mordants and modifiers. On the first day we will start by using plain silk and progress to using silk with mordants and modifiers. On the second day we will continue with our experiments by learning a technique called Medium Printing where we add color over the leaf prints.

Class size is limited to 12 students so sign up soon.  Preferences will go to those who sign up for both days.     You can reserve your spot on our website via paypal, or stop in the gallery or give us a call. Hurry, you must sign up by April 24th in order for us to order supplies!  

Tuition: $200 plus $100 for supplies for the two day class or $110 plus $50 for supplies for a one day class (you will go home with completed samples, silk scarves and a handout)
