This class will provide the skills needed to dye and print utilizing found materials from nature, the kitchen, or a walk around the block. Students will be encouraged to look for interesting detritus from their yards to their junk drawers. These coloring methods will be used on natural fabrics made of protein and cellulosic fibers, as well as readily available paper.
There will be discussion on fugitive color and what materials to avoid when color stability is important. Different mordants will be discussed and developed according to the material used to provide permanent color. Students will discover an array of materials to use for printing and dyeing, develop appropriate mordants, properly prepare their materials for the coloring process, and experiment with a variety of found materials on various substrates, all with hands-on assistance from an engaging instructor.
Students will receive a list of supplies required for this class upon registration.
Registration for this course will close on 6/27/18.
