Print and Paint with Natural Dyes
Nov 07, 2022 10:00AM—4:30PM
Take your natural dye skills to the next level as you learn to make dye solutions and apply them to fabric by painting, screen printing, and more for an infinite variety of unique designs. Mordant and then dye your natural-fiber fabric a light background color before class and then get creative directly applying natural colors during class! Information on mordanting and dyeing will be provided after you register.
