Natural Dye Printing Workshop at Contemporary Textile Studio

Part of the Sustainable Design Series at the Contemporary Textile Studio Co-operative, at 401 Richmond in Toronto

In this intensive 3-day workshop, learn the principles of preparing different fabrics with mordants and making dye extracts from diverse dye sources for hand-painting and printing on cloth. Technical and creative experimentation with mordant, tannin, dye and discharge printing will be explored through sampling on cloth with different mark-making processes – screen, stencil, and block-printing. Discover the rich colour possibilities achieved through modifiers and enhancers, over-printing and colour mixing.

$315, plus $50 material +HST (includes dyes, auxilaries and fabrics)

LOCATION:  Contemporary Textile Studio, 401 Richmond Street West, Toronto
