The Natural Color Spectrum

October 6, 2019 – October 12, 2019

Amy Taylor

During this workshop students experiment with and explore how to apply color to fabric using a rich array of natural materials. You will learn how to achieve strong, saturated colors using various mordants, tannins and dye stuffs and practice a diverse array of resist techniques to add dimension and pattern to your works. Participants will take home an assortment of fabrics to create a sample book and recipes to continue their natural dye practice at home. Open to all skill levels.
