BK-PND-Wed-Feb14) Printing w/ Natural Dyes
 

In this  class, students will further explore their knowledge of printing techniques through the use of natural dye to make print pastes, instead of synthetic dyes or inks. 

Using both screen printing and block printing techniques, students will focus on building their knowledge of using natural dyes for surface design through understanding of natural dyes, thickners, resist pastes, mordants and proper setting. 

Pre-requisites: Basic printing ( screen-printing or block-printing) and/or basic natural dyeing knowledge
