Print & Paint with Natural Dyes
I just last week attended another 4-day workshop at Maiwa in Vancouver, BC. I had wanted to take this particular workshop last year when it was offered but the class was full. I was able to attend this year - so very grateful for the opportunity to do the class.
Here below, are just some of the mixed natural dyes that we used.
Here below, is a sample I painted on cotton with some of the same colours, but done on cotton.
Steaming the fabric to 'set' the colours after printing and painting.
