Summer Color: Natural Dyes of Portland with Cydni Carter Lopez
Location: Portland Studio
Teacher: Cydni Carter Lopez
Portland is in full bloom this time of year with a bright array of dye plants at our fingertips. This one-day workshop leads students on a tour of unexpected color from garden plants, weeds, flowers and trees commonly found around the city, with hands-on lessons in plant processing, fiber preparation, and of course, dyeing! We will use non-toxic mordants, plant and animal fibers (cotton, wool, and silk) to create a journal of swatches and samples, recording the summer colors of Portland, OR. Students will also take home a dyed silk scarf and cotton bandana.
No previous experience necessary. Open to all adults 16 & up.
