Event details

Mordant Screen Printing and Natural Dyeing Workshop

May 25th, 2024
Saturday | 10h - 17h (1h lunch break)

Price - 100€ (Material included)
Trainers - Rita Daniel from FICA and Tamara Bigot from Distinto Studio


In the Screen Printing with Jaws and Natural Dyeing Workshop we will print fabrics using the screen printing technique, but with a focus on creating the jaw folders with which we will print. Printing with mordants allows us to create patterns that will then receive color through natural dyeing. This process allows the fabric to receive the colors through dye baths only in the areas where the pattern has been printed. We will create patterns and screen print them on silk and cotton and dye them in different dye baths.

No previous knowledge is required. However, the focus of this workshop will be on creating patterns using different solutions and not so much on natural dyeing.
