Botanical Printing with Mayumi Fujio
October 1 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm$150
Learn to create beautiful botanical prints using fresh leaves, flowers, and minerals.
Join us at the beautiful Fibershed Learning Center on Black Mountain Ranch near Point Reyes Station, CA, where Mayumi will introduce botanical printing using fresh leaves and flowers, along with minerals, to transfer natural colors and shapes from plants onto fiber. It is like printing a photo directly from the leaves to the fabric. This introductory class will give you an understanding of dye plants and our relationship with nature. You will go home with a beautiful one-of-a-kind silk scarf (11″ x 64″) dyed with fresh plants from the Bay Area. Fresh leaves and flowers will be provided, but you are also encouraged to bring leaves and flowers from your garden, making it a personal scarf.

Mayumi Fujio is a fiber artist creating botanical printed art. The history of botanical printing is still young so she is constantly experimenting with new ideas. She has studied Ikebana, field botany, as well as edible and medicinal plants. This helps to create an aesthetic that is in harmony with nature and beauty. She uses all-natural plant and mushroom dyes to get vibrant colors for the background of her textiles, and, for the leaf patterns, she grows and harvests fresh plants from around the San Francisco Bay Area. She aims to create sustainable art using nature.
Mayumi’s art pieces are sold at Asian Art Museum, Seattle Art Museum, San Jose Textile Museum, and other art venues. She won an award at the prestigious Mill Valley Arts Festival in 2022.
