This class will give participants the knowledge and skills to create their own dye vats, mordants, bundle dyes, and more! Explorations will include a rainbow of hues sourced from indigo, turmeric root, floral dyes, avocado, black bean, and madder root. The final class will be an outdoor exhibition and picnic where students may invite friends and family to view their works on display.
