Date: Friday, Sept 29 6:30pm-9pm
Location: Location: 817 W. Davis Street #110
Instructor: Sarita Westrup


In the workshop participants will be introduced to the world of surface design techniques using thicken mordants. Learn how to mix and paint with invisible mordants such as iron and alum to attain multiple colors in one dye bath. We will experiment with historically prevalent natural dyes such as cochineal red, marigold yellow, and cutch brown. 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 naturally dyed cotton, linen, hemp, and silk swatches.
