Steam bundling is a fascinating process that uses steam to transfer the print of real plants directly onto fabric. Through the use of steam and pressure beautiful direct contact prints of leaves, flowers, bark and more can be created. In this workshop you will learn the basic methods of steam bundle printing using both silk and cotton fabric. We will use a range of beautiful plant materials including natives and introduced species. Each participant will come away with beautifully steam dyed fabrics that can be taken home. In this workshop we will use low toxic additives such as white vinegar and home-made rust solution to bind the prints to the fabric. No hard chemicals are used in the workshop. This workshop includes a take home instruction booklet so you can recreate the magic at home!
