This workshop will focus on making with intention. I normally provide space to learn techniques and give freedom for each to create as one feels prompted. However, I am wanting to explore deeper connection and have created this guided workshop that still gives a multitude of techniques but with the intention that together we will all create a mandala. This sacred symbol will become a mark for inspiration as you dive into your inner voice. I have been creating mandala work for many years and it is always very satisfying. I will share not only techniques to use but tips and tricks that I implement in my own work.


Day 1- Meditate – introduction to mandalas and our collective intent. Overview of all techniques. Start making samples (mini mandalas) Introduce mordant – Alum – Iron
Technique 1 -Direct Dye (composting) plants and rust
Make samples for color and mini mandala samples  

Day 2- Share results answer questions
Technique 2- Rust printing, tannin and iron
Make samples for color and mini mandala samples  

Day 3 – Share results answer questions.
Technique 3 - Shibori, natural dye baths
Make samples for colors and mini mandala samples. Finish final project  

I will provide dyes, fabrics for samples and one 28 inch square textile for a final mandala.

We will have a half hour lunch break each day. I will provide iced or hot tea. Please bring food according to your needs.

Bring any iron objects that you would like to print.
