In this workshop, students will explore the process of creating botanical leaf prints on silk fabric.
Students will learn how to prepare your silk fabric for successful printing, how to identify the best type of leaves to use and where to find them. Students will create 3 to 4 sample prints that may be framed or to make note cards. The final project of the day will be creating your own 72" silk botanical print scarf.

Omi's Harlem Design Studio is within walking distance from Central Park. You can be sure to find her in "Natures Art Studio," Central Park, collecting leaves and even weaving on her portable floor loom. "People are always fascinated when they see me gathering leaves; they ask 'what are going to do with them?' I show them pictures of my work and they are pleasantly surprised. When I'm weaving on my loom, in the park, I often invite people to sit, watch and try it out. I enjoy converting people to the Art of Creating."
