October 14&15: Printing With Natural Dyes

Natural Dyes are amazing and diverse. From the various plants to harvest, to the variety of colours you can get from just one plant, Natural Dyes are pretty mind blowing!  In this workshop we’re going to explore another exciting way to use Natural Dyes. Mixing natural plant powders with natural dye extracts to thicken the dyes so that we can stamp, stencil and silkscreen with them.

The class will run through how to best prepare your cloth to accept dye and keep the dye through washing and sunlight, mordanting, then we will make Natural Dye Extracts and thicken them so that we can explore printing on fabric using stamps, stencils and silkscreens.

No experience in Natural Dyeing Required.

Cost: 200$ + 50$ material fee

Bring; a lunch, rubber gloves and wear clothes than can get dirty.
