Dyeing to Rust Workshop

Dyeing to Rust Workshop

Students came from Calgary, Ontario, Wisconsin, Texas, Santa Fe, New York, Portland and Seattle to attend the third Dyeing To Rust workshop with rust goddess, Pam Nichols.Despite the scorching heat (unusual for us here in the Pacific Northwest), the nine artists created gorgeous rusted papers and fabric to incorporate in their encaustic paintings.

This group worked hard and created some beautiful art. 

Our next class will be in Bend, Oregon next spring. We will go picking for metal before starting class. Ooh. Thanks, Pam. Having way too much fun.

Here she is with one of her creations from our second Dyeing To Rust workshop.
