A Japanese word meaning “leaf dye”, hapa-zome is a Japanese art form that creates stunning prints from natural dyes. In this workshop participants will be printing using fugitive dyes from fresh common house plants, flowers, and fruits. With the guidance of artist Sajata Epps and the pressure of a rubber mallet beautiful tie-dye like prints will emerge.
