In-Depth Mordanting for Natural Dyeing with Lauren Goding
Location: Portland Studio
Teacher: Lauren Goding
Natural Dye Lovers! 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 several dye plants as well as larger cotton and silk pieces.
Ideal for those with previous natural dye knowledge. Open to students 16 & up.
