In this workshop we’ll explore the fundamental concept of natural dyeing : mordants. What are they? How do they work? Do we need them? We’ll be formulating, mixing and thickening mordant pastes and dyeing with them to create fabrics that enter into just a single infusion but emerge with many different colors dyed onto them. This is one of my favorite processes because so may things are possible from just a few ingredients. Please join me if you’re interested in learning about the basics of graphic design using natural dyes.
