Using local plants and natural extracts you will gain knowledge and experiment with the direct application of paint onto cloth. The Dogwood Dyer's Liz Spencer will demonstrate the proper methods for achieving wash and light fast results with natural dyes and share her tips and secrets for advanced techniques using natural thickeners and resists, outlining the whole process from plant to painted composition. No previous dyeing knowledge necessary. Each participant will leave with various types of fabrics in a palette of beautiful natural colors, their own original painting compositions and a handout outlining natural dye painting techniques and recipes to recreate this beautiful art at home.
