Family Garden Workshop: From Garden Picks to Eco Print

  • Sat 8 July 2023
  • 1.30 – 4.30 pm

This Summer we get hands on with educators from Garden School Foundation to explore ecofriendly techniques of printing. Ecoprinting is the process of compressing flowers and plant materials onto fabric to extract their natural pigments through a unique dye process. Using locally sourced flowers and plants as well as kitchen scraps, we will explore how to select natural dye materials, prepare fabric, create dyes and make patterns on natural fibers. Participants of all ages will create their own uniquely hand-dyed cotton bandana or ecoprint greeting cards to take home

The Garden School Foundation provides garden-based education to children at eight Title 1 elementary schools across Los Angeles. They take a holistic approach to teaching, gardening, cooking and environmental sustainability through an in-depth Seed to Table and Cafeteria to Compost programs along with regular Community Garden Days and school- based free Farmers Markets.

This event is free; however, reservations are recommended. Click here to register.
