Fabric From Nature......Eco Printing Workshop,
Hammersmith Farm, Glade Hill, Va.
On October 8 Christine Arena, the owner of the 440 acre Hammersmith farm in Glade HIll and I are hosting an eco
dyeing workshop. We will be utilizing the very old forest and all of the plants available for our palette. After a brief walk to the remodeled tobacco barn on the property we will use our acquired plants to make a beautiful silk scarf and a sample fabric of linen and cotton. While that is boiling away at the Tobacco barn, we will be transported back to the farm house for a delicious luncheon prepared by Cheryl Nylund. After lunch it's back to dying with more leaf transfer of another kind and preparing rusted object dying ( this technique takes a few days, so you will take it home with you to process). This whole eco process is a bit like beautiful magic.
Cost for the day is $85.00 which includes all materials, fabrics, supplies, a delicious lunch and a great time in a great place. Call 540-204-6827 to register . Mastercard, Visa, Checks or cash.
