Registration ended: Tuesday, November 12

Instructor: Theresa Hitchcock

Event Navigation

Materials saved from the landfill:
natural fibers

Skills you’ll learn:
textile dyeing with rusty objects

Create beautifully imprinted designs on fabric using discarded metal objects! In this workshop, you’ll learn how to prepare, wrap, and soak your fabric to draw the rust off metal objects so that it creates unique shapes and patterns. We’ll discuss ways to design with the objects using repetition and symmetry. Participants will learn how to unwrap and neutralize the fabric outside of class to create deep shades of copper.  Participants will leave with several pieces of fabric made of 100% natural fibers (cotton, silk, or wool).
