This module of Living Colour guides you through different methods of eco-printing on fabric prepared with a soy milk binder. If you want to get brighter, longer lasting eco-prints on plant-based fabric, soy milk is the answer!
Each week I will demonstrate a specific technique in a video lesson. There will also be written notes and photos to supplement your learning.
You will learn about:
- Choosing and preparing cotton, linen and nylon
- Which leaves to eco-print with
- Making and using soy milk binders and iron mordants
- Making and using iron and dye blankets
- Cooking bundles in a dyebath
The techniques you learn can be mixed and matched to provide endless possible results.
The live course begins on November 15. Enrol now to get access to the Week 1 content about choosing and preparing your fabric. You will have ongoing access to all course materials so you can work through it at your own pace and keep coming back for more inspiration.
