This practical ritual involves the simple technique of imbuing paper with colour using plants, rusty found obects and intention. We will talk about sustainable harvesting, seasons, plant species and natural mordant options. This process can be used (with an additional step) to dye fabric, which will also be discussed. We will also be making string out of corn husks. Participants will take home a landscape image which can be displayed as an artwork, or developed further into a sculpture, card or book.
