'Introduction to Natural Dyes and Mordant Printing'(workshop full)

Discover the magic of printing with mordants in conjunction with a range of natural dyes. Mordant printing is a centuries old process whereby different colours can be obtained on your cloth from just one natural dyebath.

This class will focus on several mordants and dyes as well as different printing and stamping processes. It is suitable for those wishing to extend beyond immersion dyeing to printing. It is suitable for relative beginners to the very experienced as participants can determine how to incorporate the Mordant Printing methods in their own practice.
