Explore the rich and vibrant world of natural dyes! Participants will learn to mix and paint with invisible mordants such as iron and alum to attain multiple colors on cloth in one dye bath! Create designs on fabric with stamps, brushes, and more. First, we will paint with a range of thickened mordants. Then we will prepare dyes, including cutch and cochineal. Then we will experience the magic of our painted textiles! Bring your curious and experimental self and leave with a foundation of dyeing skills and two organic cotton bandanas from Maiwa. Students feel free to bring clean, small, and light natural cloth from home (ex. cotton, silk, wool, linen). The instructor will approve selected items from home so they may be dyed in the class dye bathes.
