Natural Dye Study Group, Session One

  • Oregon College of Art and Craft 8245 SW Barnes Road Portland, OR 97225 (map)

“The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life.” (Steve Jobs)

Begin again and welcome the returning spring with the creative exploration of natural plant dyes. This year’s focus continues with color on cotton and other plant fibers. We’ll explore traditional and experimental methods of applying mordants, multiple process dyes, layering of colors, and a variety of print techniques. NOTE: This course is a continuing study group; while we build upon previous experience, adventurous beginners are always welcome!
