Natural Dyes on Paper
Taught by Maggie Latham
Dyeing fiber is a great way to customize materials for future use or create a body of work entirely through the dye process. Throughout this two-day workshop you will learn how to create eco-friendly non-toxic dye baths using beneficial plants. You will also learn how to make a soymilk mordant to bind your dye to your paper. The final product will be an array of beautifully colored, naturally dyed and/or eco-printed paper that you can use for future projects.
Maggie Latham is a fiber artist who is passionate about making creativity more accessible. She earned her BFA in Fine Arts from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, receiving the George Little Merit Award for design. Both in her work as an art instructor and in her work with The Cleveland Museum of Art, Maggie brings a passion for teaching environmental awareness through restorative material practices and hands-on processes.
