What will you learn?
In this demo-only class, participants will learn how to extract dyes using natural materials for application on paper. We will learn brush-dyeing and in the process, learn how to estimate the amount of dyestuff needed for your projects and what types of mordants are best to use and their results. We will also discuss what types of handmade papers work best and why as well as how to deal with heavily sized commercial papers when dyeing. We will not cover Indigo dyeing in this workshop. If you want to learn about that process, get the recording for the Indigo class here or sign up for a live demo through Minneapolis Center for Book Arts in February. Visit their website for more information.
