Eco Printing: Fiber Art Workshop - Mass Hort Society

Tuesday, June 12, 2018

Record your visit to Mass Hort by printing our plants on fabric!

Maine fiber artist Mary DeLano will teach you the art and craft of Eco-printing; a process where plant materials are placed on specially treated fabric and then steamed to release the pigments in the plants, leaving realistic prints of the plants on the fabric.

Participants will learn about which plants print reliably and will have a chance to experiment with other plants and to gather their own plants on the grounds of Mass Hort.

Students will take home four printed pieces of fabric, including one silk scarf and one vintage table linen.

Watch a video at
to see what fun awaits you.

Mary DeLano is a fiber explorer who loves eco printing, natural dying, stitching, wool applique, and rug making. Mary enjoys sharing her passion for fiber arts with new students. She teaches throughout New England, including at Maine Fiber College, where she also serves on the organizing committee.
