Paint on cloth using color from plants. Students in this class will get to play with a variety of natural dye paints to draw and print on cotton. Paints will be made from local plants as well as dyes known since ancient times. Materials provided include sample squares, and a cotton tote bag that has been prepared to paint. Colorful and practical plant magic you can carry with you on all your adventures.
Iris Sullivan Daire has been working with Natural dyes for over 25 years. She is currently particularly fascinated by the exploration of botanical colors applied to surface design on cloth. She lives with her family in Astoria Oregon where she is slowly mapping the color potential of the plants that grow in and around the Columbia River. Her Website is DreamBirdStudio.com
