Ritual Making – Tataki Zome

September 11 – 10am-2pm -R A W Textiles Studio  –  8536 SE Stark, PDX

$ 80.00

Registration closes September 11

The art of Hapa Zome is simply smashing the pigment out of fresh plants to create color and print.  I will show you how to mix modifiers that will change the intensity and hue of everything you print.

We will make cotton and linen samples to get you warmed up and then we can create square pieces that are composed with the leaves and petals that Rio has collected and what group has brought in to share.  That being said I encourage you to bring in cuttings of things you would like to try printing .  This could be fresh flowers, leaves, or grasses that you think may give a color.  We will identify them and make a test sample.  As a collective we will see the results and and share in this experience.  For a final piece you will print on a  cotton that can be made into a sachet.

Rio will focus on making with intention and how you can compose a magical piece.

I will be offering mugwort, rose, and lavender herbs to fill your potential sachet.

All materials are included in class fee.  Please note there are only 7 spaces so we can space out as appropriate.  There will be a 20 minute break for lunch.
