A Natural Dyer's World

A Natural Dyer's World


We’re thrilled to present our inaugural natural dyeing intensive taught by accomplished, local, textile artist, Faye Jacobs. Over the course of four weeks, Faye will lead us through the use of eight distinctive natural dyes, found locally, and teach a variety of techniques and applications.

Participants will learn about plants, roots, and food-based natural dye results on paper, silk and lace, while producing a beautiful book of personalized samples to keep either as a reference, or as a completed art piece in and of itself. The special qualities of handmade rag and kuzu papers for writing personal thoughts and poetry will also be explored throughout the workshop. Maximum 6 participants.

Sep 8, 15, 22, 29, 11am-5pm

Refreshments included. Bring a bagged lunch or local restaurant visits encouraged.
