Learn to add beautiful colours to natural fibres using plant dyes in this workshop with textile artist Tamara Klassen. Participants will process samples of cotton, silk, linen, and wool in dye baths prepared with plant material grown in southern Manitoba. You will go home with a journal record of your work and the knowledge to carry on your own dye projects in the future.
Tamara Klassen is a textile artist from Southern Manitoba. After learning to sew from her grandmother at a young age, she developed a love for textiles early on. Her work focuses on traditional artisan techniques, learned from her travels around the world, mixed with a modern design aesthetic. Working with predominately natural fibres and plant dyes such as indigo, she creates one-of-a-kind art pieces and home goods using resist-dyeing methods.
