Dynamic Duo! Nature Printing on Colored Backgrounds

  • Shake Rag Alley Center for the Arts 18 Shake Rag Street Mineral Point, WI 53565 USA (map)

This two-day class will let you dive deep into the world of natural dyes and the modern process of eco-printing by combining two techniques.  

We'll begin our workshop by exploring different natural dyes, mordants and color modifiers, learning what they are and how to work with them to color several silk scarves.  After day one, you will have a thorough understanding of how to successfully apply natural color to fabric and the ways those colors can be changed.  

Please bring an old white sheet to class (which will be used in the dye process), sturdy work gloves to prevent blisters and plastic gloves to keep hands clean. 

Class will be 10a-4p on Saturday and 10a-5p on Sunday!
