MORDANT PRINTING - Printing with Natural Dyes
Sat. 21 January 2017, 10:00 am – 5:00 pm AEDT
In this Masterclass of Mordant Printing we will be exploring the ancient technique of Les Indiennes fabrics that I learnt with Michel Garcia in Provence.
This workshop will give you an introduction on how to mix the mordants necessary for printing and make the dye baths to get an inccredible variety of beautiul colours. In addtion I will demonstrate a variety of applications with brush, roller, stamps and stencils to achieve different effects and styles ranging from very modern to classical woodblock.
Extensive handout will be provided.
The workshop will be held at DyeHaus studio, a country property high in the Blue Mountains. You will find inspiration in the rosegarden and orchard, you can collect flora to make your own dybath and recharge in the relaxing atmosphere.
Everything will be taken care of, light refreshments provided.
