Natural Dye Study Group, Session Two

  • Oregon College of Art & Craft 8245 Southwest Barnes Road Portland, OR, 97225 United States (map)

Continue the natural dye adventure!  Designed for students with some experience in natural dyeing, this course builds upon the basics of mordanting and dyeing with plant and natural dye materials.  Offered in two continuous sessions, each class will focus on expanding the basics, combining techniques, and experimenting with modifying and layering colors.  Some surface design, discharge and resist options will add to the variety of pattern and color.  This term we will focus on local, sustainable, low environmental impact dye processes.

This is a weekly class, in two successive sessions (Jan-Mar and Apr-May) with new skills added each session. Session two will meet Apr 4-May 30, Wednesdays, 6pm-9pm.

Prerequisites: Some experience in natural dyeing is helpful, but adventurous beginners are always welcome!
