In this workshop, we will be exploring application of mordants onto cloth with fibre and ceramic artist Lael Chmelyk. Mordants are the ‘glue’ that bind natural dyes to fibers. Using direct application, we will stamp, paint and print various mordants onto bandanas, then dye the cloth to reveal many shades of colour from one dye pot. All materials will be supplied including 2 cotton bandanas to dye, and 4 natural dye colours to choose from; logwood, cochineal, pomegranate, and marigold.
