Did you know that you can transfer the shape and color of a flowers or leaves directly onto fabric and paper? General Members are invited to join us this Wednesday from 1-3 pm as Kathy Mastbeth shows us how to transfer these natural dyes by pounding flowers with a hammer (see attached). 

 

Things to bring if you have them:

*Hammer or rubber mallet

*Scissors

*Towel or foam sheet for

  cushioning pounding board

 

Masking tape

Watercolor pencils or fine

line permanent markers

Tweezers

Stencils

(As always, we’ll have

extras for those who

don’t have them)

 

Kathy will provide:

 

Waxed paper

Cotton fabric, Paper

Pounding Board & Iron

 

Flowers will also be provided, but bring any you wish to try.  Just make sure they are freshly harvested and not wilted. Look for flowers and greenery that aren’t too thick.  Good choices are geraniums, impatiens, vinca, phlox, Mexican petunias, daisy-like flowers, plumbago, lantana, verbena, portulaca, leaves, fern and herbs (i.e., basil, parsley, rosemary, thyme, sage, lavender, etc.)

 

Avoid white blossoms since most don’t transfer well.

 

Be sure to bring your $5 contribution!

 

NOTE:  This will be our last planned activity until after Labor Day – the room is still reserved for Wednesday afternoons, so plan to bring your own project to work on in August.
