Saturday, March 16, 3pm-6pm
Location: 817 W. Davis Street #110
Instructor: Analise Minjarez 
# of Students : 4-12

NOTE: This workshop is only open to SAQA members.

In the workshop participants will be introduced to the world of surface design techniques called painting with mordants. Learn how to mix and paint with thickened mordants such as iron and alum to attain multiple colors in one dye bath. We will experiment with the historically prevalent natural dye cochineal. All participants will learn the basics of natural dyes, how to extract color, what are mordants, and how to use them to prep cloth for the dye bath. Students will leave with dye recipes and dye notebooks filled with swatches as well as a cotton tea towel with surface design.
