Coaxing Color: A Natural Dye Series - Part III Botanical Alchemy

This is the final class in the Natural Dye Series: Coaxing Color from the Earth's Blanket.  In this class we combine the techniques of natural dyeing and botanical printing.  We will continue to explore the use of natural dye vats and introduce the technique of eco-printing to expand the possibilities for beauty-making.  Fiber artist India Flint has brought great popularity to this natural dyeing technique through her work and teachings.  I am so grateful to have received the blessing to study and refine this technique over several years.  We will create several bundles using leaves, found objects, and string.  Part art, part science, always some Mystery - alchemy awaits. 

This is a hands on class with some lifting involved.  Each student will receive two silk scarves to dye and create several samples to take home.

You may take this class as a part of the series or independently.

Please come prepared to enjoy a day outside. Bring lunch, water and anything you need to be comfortable.
