NATURAL DYEING ON PAPER AND CLOTH — a CBAS workshop with fiber artist Judy Dominic

Two options:
Saturday, July 20 (1-5 p.m.) & Sunday, July 21 (2-4 p.m.)
or Saturday, July 27 (1-5 p.m.) & Sunday, July 28 (2-4 p.m.)

Using only what nature offers, dye paper and cloth with the lovely colors of the world around us. We will collect interesting local organics, place them on paper and/or cloth, bundle, wrap, tie and simmer them to extract the available color. The first day will be spent collecting and bundling/folding and wrapping/tying. Pots will be simmered and left to cool overnight. The second day will be like Christmas as we discover what has happened with our bundled treasures. To complement the process, compost and rust dyeing on both paper and cloth will also be explored.
 Judy Dominic is a weaver, basket maker, paper maker, book artist and installation artist who has exhibited and taught nationally and internationally. For more information and images of her work, see http://www.judydominic.com.

Workshops will be held at the artist's studio in Harrison, Ohio. Directions will be sent to all registrants.
