We're sorry, but all tickets sales have ended because the event is expired.

Instructor: Liz Spencer

Skill Level: Beginner

Using local plants and natural extracts you will gain knowledge and experiment with the direct application of paint onto cloth. The Dogwood Dyer’s Liz Spencer will demonstrate the proper methods for achieving wash and light fast results with natural dyes and share her tips and secrets for advanced techniques using natural thickeners, outlining the whole process from plant to painted composition. No previous dyeing knowledge necessary. This technique is aptly suited for masking stains or dinginess on well-loved garments and linens and is capable of breathing new natural color beauty back into old textile items. Each participant will leave with naturally painted textiles, their own original painting composition on paper and a handout outlining natural dye painting techniques and recipes to recreate this beautiful art at home.
