About the Event
Create a fabulous, permanent image on a zippered throw pillow cover using found objects and the sun!
We will use light sensitive dyes, in your choice of colors, to create an image on the cotton fabric using sunlight. Suitable objects include leaves and flowers, lace, flat objects, stencils, and even computer printouts on transparency film. Standard size throw pillow covers will be provided, but not the pillow form. Detailed information will be provided upon registration so you can gather objects or create stencils. Suitable for any skill level, this is considered an adult class because of the chemicals, but older children may work with an adult.
Class minimum: 4 students
Class maximum: 10 students
