CLASS: Natural Dye Study Group, Session One

Welcome the return of autumn with an exploration of natural color from plants on both fabrics and papers.  This term’s focus will be on the decorative art of printing with natural dye sources.  We’ll use traditional block printing methods, multi-color registration of pattern, screen-printing, mono-printing, direct application with brush, and some new shibori methods. Multiple mordant, dye, and pigment applications are included in the investigations.  While this course builds upon previous experience, adventurous beginners are always welcome!

This is a weekly class, in two successive sessions (Sept-Oct and Nov-Dec) with new skills added each session. Session one will meet Sept 20-Oct 25, Wednesdays, 6pm-9pm.
