Partnership with DukeCreate & DuWell
About the Workshop
Join us to create your unique tote bag that captures a piece of nature. Explore a special technique that can directly transfer plants onto textiles. Each participate will be provided with a tote bag that they can take home at the end of the workshop. This workshop will provide some plants but encourages participates to bring their own favored leaves and flowers to create their unique styles.
