Limited to 15 participants
Cost $140 – Materials Provided
In this class you will make 3 gorgeous scarves, and more if you choose purchase additional blank scarves to dye. Inspired by nature and the world around her, Sara Setzer will guide you through the eco printing process, showing you how to create wearable, functional art with a one-of-a-kind look. Eco printing is a form of dyeing that uses leaves and other natural items, such as onion skins, rust, avocado seeds and skins to create unique designs on fabric. Sara taught this class during the Endless Arts weekend in 2018 and is back by popular demand !
Sara Setzer is a fiber artist who concentrates on felt-work, hand dyeing and botanical printing. The bulk of Sara’s work is creating scarves, wraps, collars and capelets, although she makes many other ‘wooly creations’ from dryer balls to felted soaps, and her very popular ‘Wooly Nesters’. Most items are hand dyed or eco dyed/printed using natural materials and leaves. Needle Felting first captured Sara’s attention when a friend introduced her to it. Since then she has taught herself through books, the internet and creative experimentation.
Sara moved to The Endless Mountains in 2018. You can visit her in Studio 9-325 at The Pajama Factory in Williamsport, PA or on her website at sarasetzerfeltworks.com.
