Pure Substance - Unpredictable Pattern

Discover the wonder of rusts - oxides of copper and iron - to transform fabric with incredibly textured patterns. Sometime as gentle as a watercolour wash, sometimes as saturated as a pure burst of pigment. 
This ground-breaking workshop will lead students through a number of projects on silks, cottons, wool knit, and paper. Using contact printing, immersion dyeing, tannin, oxides and indigo, students will open up an entirely new world of working with materials and cloth. Read full description.
