Dec 3: Block Printing with Natural Dyes and Mordants with Frances Dorsey
Explore printing with natural dyes on silk, cotton, linen, any natural fibre. In the class participants will print with mordants and dyes, apply simple mechanical resists, and dye the fabric in local plant dyebaths as well as in natural dye extracts. Using woodblocks and found objects, participants will apply mordants or natural dye extracts to fabric and then dye it, achieving a range of lightfast and washfast colour from one dyebath.
Members, $85.50 (+ HST for all classes)
