Ecoprinting on Cards Using Natural Dyes

July 31 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm EDT

$38

Instructor: Dawn Andersson. Experiment with as many different techniques for eco dyeing on paper as you and Dawn can fit into the class time frame. Learn to mordant the paper with alum, then dye it using plant parts from local sources, mostly Dawn’s garden. All are easy to grow in our climate, and Dawn will bring some seeds and plants to share with you. Learn about the dance between iron and tannin, play with color blankets, and use leaves as resists. You may also bring a cotton item to throw in the steamer while we eat lunch.

 

Dawn says, “In this class I will strive to help students connect with the rich sources of color found in plants all around them. It is a beautiful way to connect with the natural world.”

 

Please bring a lunch.
