Paper Dyeing: Wisteria Wall Hanging
Join us for the second installation of our stunning Paper Dyeing Series. The second of 3 workshops focus on Wisteria. You will learn the techniques and leave with a beautiful wall hanging. We will begin with a demo to experiment with fabric dye and learn how the dye impacts the various types of paper. Using pre-cut vellum, we learn how to dye petals to be used to create your own beautiful hanging wisteria wall piece. While our newly dyed paper dries out, we will forage for the perfect branch to hold these floral elements. After bringing our hanging branch back to the studio, we will learn how to manipulate the paper with wire to create a hanging wisteria-like shape and attach each floral element to the branch creating a beautiful floral piece all your own!
Ages 18+ (kids 13+ may also buy a ticket and join with an adult)
Other notes: Bring an apron, or wear something you don’t mind getting dye on in the event it splashes. I will supply the paper, dye, dye bath trays, drying racks, and plastic gloves.
