Natural Dyeing For Book and Paper Artists

August 4, 2019 – August 10, 2019

Natalie Stopka

This workshop introduces students to sustainable sources of color as they extract and fix natural dyes to paper, fabric and thread. You will discover the historical and material sympathy between natural dyes and traditional bookbinding fibers and pay special attention to the use of mordants for lasting color. After applying color and pattern to book materials, participants will move to the bindery to create structures to feature the dyed elements. Students will depart with thorough knowledge of the best practices of natural dyeing, the beginnings of a swatch library, and handmade books incorporating a myriad of botanical hues. Open to all skill levels.





COURSE FEE: $600
