Location: Corlis Taylor’s Studio 104#
748 Gaffney Road
Class fee: $60, plus $15 material fee
Join us in this fun and exciting opportunity to learn Eco-printing with plant materials and Natural dyeing with dye extracts to make gorgeous, unique paper. Instructors will provide paper, dyeing equipment, plant material and dye extract; but feel free to collect from your own garden, or woods. Leaves, berries, bark, flowers and other plant materials, such as onion skins can be kept fresh for several days in gallon sized plastic bags. Rusty items such as nails and old metal objects make interesting design elements as they leave imprints on the paper.
Payment in advance is most appreciated. Checks or cash will be accepted at the beginning of class.
Checks may be mailed to the NBG studio at Suite 205, 3550 Airport Way, Fairbanks, AK 99709
