What's Included

In this class, students will further explore their knowledge of printing techniques through the use of natural dye to make print pastes, instead of synthetic dyes or inks. Using both screen printing and block printing techniques, students will focus on building their knowledge of using natural dyes for surface design through understanding of natural dyes, thickeners, resist pastes, mordants and proper setting. // Instructor: Hannah Schultz, www.hannahschultz.com

About This Organizer

Textile Arts Center aspires to unify and empower the textile community, and advocate for the handmade. 


Textile Arts Center (TAC) is a NYC-based resource facility dedicated to raising awareness and understanding of textiles through creative educational programs for children and adults. At TAC, we aspire to unify the textile community and advocate for the handmade by providing accessible, skills-based classes that reinvigorate engagement with traditional crafts. Techniques like weaving, sewing, and dyeing are practical, connective, and process-driven -- common denominators for designers, artists, and creative practitioners around the world. Because these activities are so widely used, they help to foster community and bring creativity back into our daily lives. They are part of our collective history and vital to our ongoing expressions of design, art, and culture.
