Painting with Earth Pigments

Earth pigments are naturally occurring minerals that can be used on textiles, but work differently than natural dyes. In this workshop, learn to prepare and paint your fabric using earth pigments such as ochre, sienna, and umber. You can create your own patterns on clothing or linen, or play with stamps and stencils to paint specific designs.

Please bring along the fabric you’d like to paint. All other materials are included.
