Mordant printing combined with Natural Dyes is a fascinating area, as yet quite unexplored and offers possibilities like no other technique in dyeing and printing.
The same rules apply as for natural dyes, but mordants are printed onto fabric with stamps or applied with brushes to accept the dye and make patterns.
The workshop offers a thorough technical grounding to explore this technique which I have recently learnt at a workshop with Michel Garcia in France.
The colours are just so enticing and the handle of cloth remains soft. This technique originates in India and has been used for centuries for the Indiennes.
