Workshop will cover traditional indigenous practices of using black walnuts in immersion dyeing to create a range of warm browns and blacks, and as a healing medicine

Participants will complete a specific set of samples that illustrate the range of possible colors using different ways of manipulating fabric.  Basic contemporary surface design techniques will be shared to develop complex colors and visual texture.  Participants will leave with a workbook containing instructions, dye samples and recipes for all the dye, medicine and ink processes covered in the workshop.  In addition, recipes for other common natural dyes will be included.
