  • Instructor: Jasmine Kornel Saturday July 11, 10am-4pm This workshop will focus on exploring the array of color that can be achieved using historically cultivated natural dyes on a variety of fabrics. Many of the dyes will be from the Praxis natural dye garden. Students will get the opportunity to use  multiple immersion baths for layered and complex results. The basics of extraction and storage of dyes will be covered as well as some simple resist techniques to enhance color variations. All materials are included. Students are welcome to bring additional potential dye material for experimentation.  
  • Instructor: Sandy Shelenberger Saturday, July 25, 10 – 4pm Explore using soy wax as a resist on fabric to create a sophisticated look of multi-dimensional layering in easy to do steps.

Demonstrations of wax removal techniques. This workshop will be held outside and you will be provided with an individual table and supplies.
