Bring Birds Back! Paper, Cloth, and Fiber/Dye Processes with Douglas Baulos
May 14th Workshop: using plant-based dye, photo emulsion, and mark-making processes.
**Limited to Ten Participants**
During the workshop, participants will experiment with natural dyes from Alabama, printing and using dyed fibers from Doug’s Dye Garden. We will experiment with boro mending, cyanotype and other photo emulsions, learn how to use mordants, and consider some bird and moth motifs.
This workshop will include a discussion on shinrin-yoku (forest bathing) and weather permitting, include some time in the community garden.
Participants are encouraged but not required to bring various fabrics they like! If in doubt about thickness – bring lots! You may also want to bring a ruler, pencil, scissors and cutting matt and xacto blade or utility knife.
While this workshop will not focus on stitching, you are welcome to also bring a crewel or embroidery needle and a spool of coats and clark’s button thread, awl or pushpin, and bone folder if you have them.
Please bring any other objects you might want to work with including: digital negatives, high-contrast black and white photocopies of your own artwork or text, and whatever else you might enjoy!
Lunch will be from 12-1. We will provide coffee, tea, and water. Please bring along a brown bagged lunch. We encourage physical distancing outside and require masks inside.
If you haven’t already, please take a look at Doug’s website to view his art, installations, and learn more about him!
