Hey ya'll! We wanted to share some photos from our last workshop at the HP Rawlings Conservatory! In this workshop, we focused on Sappanwood as a natural dye, which is the heartwood to several species of trees throughout Asia and South America. The colors produced by Sappanwood can range from bright magentas to deep crimsons. Its pure magic! We also played with the pH levels of Sappanwood. As you look at the images below you will see our communal tapestries also have inky areas of orange, purple and duster pinks.
We were also able to create a concentrated natural dye ink out of Cutch. Folks were able to paint designs onto the tapestries, creating an even more layered composition.

We had such a great time (as always!) and can't wait for our second to last workshop September 9th.
