Hapa-Zome

This workshop is best when it takes place at a garden and during the summer and autumn months while there are plenty of plants available for use. 

Participants will get a tour of the garden and learn what plants work for botanical dyeing. While on tour, we will harvest a small selection of plants to bring back to the classroom for our hapa-zome. Participants will learn best practices to make beautiful designs and will make art with plants!

Hapa-Zome is a term coined by India Flint and refers to the act of pounding plant material onto paper or fabric to create imprints.
