Want to learn ecoprinting and wool felting? Here's the path.....遊走植物與羊毛的創作路

  
This silk yardage I printed with leaves collected in my area with "mix and match" eco-prints technique for the shades. All done with natural resources. 

Just a little merino wool I made a seamless reversible nuno felted dress with own printed silk jersey. I have been doing research and experiments with different plants and techniques in this area. By chance I am invited to teach in Canada this fall.


During the 4-day workshop I will teach the skills of natural printing on silk yardage then make it into a wrap/vest and another one into a seamless reversible nuno felt top/tunic. 
We will use plants to derive pigments with natural extracts
Shades and outlines on fabric

I was asked how to become so addicted in fibres.
Well, that's the magic of wool.  I was fascinated by the versatility of wool with nuno felt technique. Then printed and dyed own yardage for garments making.
These nuno felt dresses with logwood dyed and assorted leaves prints.  Wool is not only warm but also airy and light.
 


My passion drives me to design a series of rustic costume for the fashion walk.....



passion drives my overseas teaching and interaction....


All those interaction overseas earned me friendship with like-minded people
I like simple and developed my way of working

Particularly like to make reversible, functional, multi-style wearables

During the workshop in BC Vancouver I will teach to make this multi-style wrap/vest with own printed yardage.
As well a seamless, reversible nuno felt tunic/top with textures.

    1. The leaves in Canada would be different from my local. That will be fun to explore.
