Making Dyes and Paper from Garden Plants and Weeds
Wednesdays, July 9, 16, 23, 30, 2014, 9:30 am - 2 pm
Plant lovers, gardeners and crafters will be amazed at the garden plants and weeds that can produce dyes for fiber and handmade paper. Learn how to harvest and process plant fibers, then dye and press them to make paper. Explore solar dyeing, an eco- friendly method of making dyes. Natural fibers such as cotton, wool and linen are dyed for embellishments and other projects. Botanical artists can draw paint and illustrate the plants. Others might create a notebook, journal or project of their choice with their handmade paper. Instructors: Celeste Johnston and Judith Towers.
