Materials saved from the landfill:
stained or torn textiles, dye plant matter
Skills you’ll learn:
folding + steaming techniques for bundling, achieving color and shape with various dye materials
Come get creative with Erin Luna of Black Rat Farms in this introductory, experimental dyeing process! You’ll learn how to use heat and moisture to transfer dye stuffs directly onto mordanted cotton fabric. The fabric will be prepared ahead of class, but Erin will discuss how to do it yourself in the future. Through this mirror-image process you can create both abstract and realistic shapes and lines using natural dye stuffs such as dried flowers, wood chips, and insects. The dye stuffs used in each class will differ depending on seasonal availability.
