Saturday–Sunday, September 21–22

Learn about Kusakizome, which translates to “plant dyeing,” in a two-day workshop led by Glennis Dolce. Kusakizome has a long tradition in Japan with in-season plant materials collected regionally and used for different purposes. For this workshop, you will use a variety of locally sourced plant materials on a variety of silks with simple mordants. There will be a light indigo vat available to “shift” colors and simple shiboribinding techniques will be used to test the plant dye materials. Each participant will also make a test sample notebook for reference during future crafting projects.

$72 members, $90 non-members, plus $40 materials fee due to instructor at the beginning of class (cash only). Limited to 20 participants. Museum admission included.
