Monoprint Resist with Plant Dyes using Itajime Resist Technique with Angelina DeAntonis

Sunday | March 26, 2017 | 10:00 am — 4:00 pm

University of California Botanical Garden | 200 Centennial Drive, Berkeley, CA 94720

We will explore the dye resist technique “itajime” using this folding and binding method to create your own scarf. Participants will gather plant material and create a monoprint resist using plant dyed wood blocks. The dyed blocks will transfer through the layers of silk, making a repeated pattern with a subtle and surprising botanical pattern, as we over-dye with natural dyes in our workshop.

Please wear clothing that can get stained, and bring rubber gloves, a notebook, and an apron.
