Eco Print Workshop @ Oshala Farm September 21, 2019

In nature I find freedom of expression. I am influenced by the juxtaposition of urbanization and the bio-diversities in plants and wildlife. I utilize techniques from indigenous peoples who have created paints and dyes using plants, lichen and fungi for centuries. Incorporating eco-printing techniques, using heat to draw out the tannins and natural pigment, add an unexpected quality to my work. Copper and iron are combined with these disparate elements in order to express my desire to harmonize the natural world with our ever increasing urban way of life.

Artist Reem Khalil is a fiber artist since 1998. Using different plant material, reem will teach the art of nature and alchemy as the fountain of inspiration! Eco-printing is a technique where plants, leaves and flowers leave their shapes, color, and marks on fabric. Plant material bundled inside of cloth is steamed or boiled to release the dye found naturally inside the plant, creating a contact print in the shape of the leaf or flower used. Eco prints are essentially direct contact printing methods, drawing out pigments from plants to make interesting and often surprising marks on paper, cellulose (cotton, linen) and protein (silk, wool) fibers.
