What you'll learn in this textile painting class:

Color grows all around us, sometimes in spectacular blooms, and sometimes in the humble common plants we overlook or take for granted. It lays hidden in the bark or heartwood of some trees, or hides in your kitchen cabinet of spices and herbs. 

Join me and learn about color growing all around you, and take part in one of the oldest human traditions by painting and stamping natural dye pigments onto fabrics.

Students will get to experiment with several natural dye pigments and different fabrics.
