20 Dec upcycling with leaf print dyeing
Plant dyes infuse cloth with their medicine and power. In this class we will explore the technique of naturally dyeing clothing with leaves to potentially receive their distinct prints. We will discuss the importance of upcycling, and the types of fiber and mordant preparations that are optimal. We will address the relationships that we form and tend with plants and the ritual aspects of courting fire to infuse our clothing with their medicine. There will be many garments to choose from or you are welcome to bring your own.
Amy Trout will be offering upcycling with leaf print dyeing.
