Her Plant to Print 1 introductory workshop this past June at Spinning Plate was a hit, with requests for a longer version. Here it is!
If you choose to have a silk screen done, the artwork is due to Michelle Browne by June 1. Participants may supplement with their own “ready to print,” pre-scoured silk or wool fabrics.
