Painting with Natural Dyes

  • Poketo Project Space ROW DTLA Los Angeles, CA (map)

Come learn, experiment, and play with the time-honored art of natural dyeing with Liz Spencer of The Dogwood Dyer. Whether it's locally foraged plants, organic homegrown dyestuffs or natural extracts, participants will gain knowledge of how to make their own paints from scratch and come away with an understanding of the successful direct application of paint onto a cloth. Natural dyes are aptly suited for more than just textile application and can be effective on other natural porous substances like paper and wood too.

Liz will demonstrate the proper methods for achieving a wash and lightfast results with natural dyes and share her tips and secrets for advanced techniques using natural thickeners and resists, outlining the whole process from plant to painted composition.
