Workshop: Eco Dying and Printing
August 27 - August 29$385.00
Spend a weekend immersed in dying paper, fabrics and yarns with foraged plants from our 550 acres and from the “dyer’s garden” at Adamah. We will learn about mordents, gathering and preparing dye plants and making dye baths. We will dye yarn in vats of color and use the “roll up and tie” dying method for fabric and paper. This method imprints plant images onto the surfaces. Participants will be provided with all materials, a chance to gather plants and instruction sheets to take home.
Workshop fee includes lodging at the Art Ventures Retreat Center or Prairie Center, all meals and all materials.
