Eco-print results from this week’s class!

It’s been hot, hot, hot here in Chicago, but that did not deter us from our scheduled Eco-printing Class on Tuesday.  With the air conditioning on full blast and the kettles boiling, we were able to start and complete our botanical prints class.

All the scouring and mordanting of the cloth had been done previously, so we were able to focus on arranging our plants on cloth and steaming and boiling in the kettles.  Here are some of our very successful results:
