Once again we will have a presential course on Initiation to Natural Dyeing at Saber Fazer!
This training will be guided by Guida Fonseca and is aimed at those who want to take their first steps in Natural Dyeing, with an emphasis on the use of dyes and auxiliary products of natural origin, without harmful effects on the environment.
In recent years, we have been collaborating with Guida in the area of Natural Dyeing, as she is a professional who is aligned with us with regard to the principles of sustainability and environmental responsibility that we believe should support good practices in this area, and also for her rigor technician.
This edition will focus on reds that come from natural sources and that allow us to obtain a wide spectrum of colors, from the primary ones, such as yellow and red, but also the secondary ones, such as greens, purples, browns, etc., depending on the material we have at our disposal. We will also learn about dyeing with lichens and the reds obtained from the cochineal.
We will learn about iconic dyeing plants, learn about the preparation of materials and the role of mordants, and try out some different techniques in the dyeing process.
