Add color to your fibers and fabrics by using sustainable methods

A course by Anabel Torres

Nature is an unparalleled color palette spanning the entire visible spectrum, from the greens of the trees to the blues of the sky. It is in nature that Mexican textile artist Anabel Torres finds her inspiration. In her search for sustainability, she discovered natural textile dyeing and it became the primary focus of her work, giving beautiful, natural colors to different products and sharing her technique by running workshops.

In this course, learn to dye fibers and fabrics with natural pigments, and then collect all your formulas and notes in a dyeing logbook—every textile artist's best friend!
