This workshop introduces paper dyeing with natural pigments for hand papermaking. Participants will learn how to prepare natural dyes from weld, lac, and walnut to dye paper fiber and how to apply natural dye to already made sheets of paper. Using the dyed paper fiber, the group will learn the basic techniques of Western papermaking, including sheet formation, pressing, and drying. Participants will leave the workshop with handmade sheets of paper for use in bookbinding, printing, collage or other creative applications.
