Event description

Description

You don’t have to be a painter or sculptor to learn to capture the colors and shapes of nature! Enter eco printing, which combines natural history, creativity and fun by using local leaves, fruits and flowers to create unique textile impressions on silk. Regional Parks’ naturalist Shelly Spriggs will bring samples of eco-printed scarves and give a step-by-step demonstration. We will harvest a small amount of leaves, petals, and other foliage from the Laguna Environmental Center’s native plant landscape and grandmother’s garden around the old farmhouse. We’ll learn how to arrange the collected plant materials on the silk, then fold, bundle and steam them in a pot of water which persuades the plants to transfer their image to the fabric with surprising color. While the prints are setting, we will take a 1-2 mile easy-paced walk along Irwin Creek to the Laguna on mostly flat but uneven terrain, if weather allows. All workshop materials are provided. Bring a picnic lunch. This workshop and outing will take place rain or shine and is made possible through a partnership with the Laguna Foundation and Sonoma County Regional Parks.


CANCELLATION POLICY: If you need to cancel, please notify us as soon as possible so that someone on the wait list may attend. Events that cost $20 and less are non-refundable (except in case of our canceling for inclement weather or other extenuating circumstances, in which case we will issue full refunds). This is due to materials and administrative costs. Thank you for your understanding and for your interest and support of our programs!
