Natural dye enthusiasts! This is your opportunity to push your skills (and palettes!) to the next level with a deep dive into the world of natural color-modifiers and color-binders known as mordants. Mastering the art and science of mordanting allows the sophisticated dyer to achieve a spectrum of colors from a single plant, simply by preparing cotton and silk fabric in different ways. This class will lead students through numerous natural mordants from both the mineral and plant worlds. Students will leave with a journal of samples for each mordant that have been dipped into color from one dye plant as well as larger cotton and silk pieces.

No previous experience necessary. Open to all adults 16 & up.
