May 20 Bundoora for Papermakers of Victoria
Colouring Paper with Natural Dyes and Clay
In this workshop we will explore ways of colouring paper with natural dyes and with found pigments. We will also discuss the ways in which dyes and pigments differ and how they can be applied to paper and paper pulp. Materials used for dyeing include avocado skin, loquat leaves, onion skins and gum leaves.
Sundays 22 and 28 October Bundoora Park
During the first session you will learn how to make textured paper and to join sheets together in the wet stage to make a textured scroll or accordion book that you will treat with a decorative finish of your choice during the second session.
The finishes covered will be verdigris, graphite, antiquing, spray dyes and rusting. You will get the chance to make enough samples for each finish and will take home recipes for each technique.
