Natural dyes are a journal of a landscape, and here in western North Carolina- these hills offer us a rainbow of possibilities. We’ll spend the weekend wandering around on sweet adventures foraging for color and in the studio learning about how color and fiber work together. We will use a variety of mordants (plant and metal based) and see what the outdoors offer us (the likes of Queen Anne’s lace, goldenrod, sumac, birch, comfrey, and garden grown indigo will probably all come to the party). This is the second class in a choose your own adventure textile extravoganza- feel free to take one, two or all three classes!
*One full-tuition scholarship is available for this class. If you are interested in a scholarship or work-study position, please see our scholarship & work-study page
