What’s the difference between pigmenting and dyeing paper? A lot! In this face-paced workshop, you will learn how pigmenting and dyeing techniques differ, and make many paper samples of both. We will start off working with natural dyes such as indigo, walnut, and cochineal dyes and then move on to experimenting with fiber-reactive dyes on paper. The second half of class will focus on adding aqueous dispersed pigments to create brightly colored sheets of handmade paper. You’ll leave with a big stack of samples and an understanding of the pros and cons of both dyeing and pigmenting techniques.


Level: All levels welcome
