Workshop: The Power of Two Suns
Drop into a hands-on creative workshop designed by a teaching artist in response to underlying themes in Yto Barrada with invited guest Bettina’s exhibition The Power of Two Suns.
Join artists from the Textile Arts Center to learn more about natural dye plants. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to extract the dyes from flowers, roots, leaves and barks (from historical and local sources) and how to transform them into paints for textiles.
