Oregon College of Arts & Crafts Panel Discussion and Workshop

Making it Naturally


A workshop on the study and applied art of screen printing and dyeing with 100% non-toxic natural inks, dyes, fabrics and extract from experts in the fields, Lydia Wendt, founder of California Cloth Foundry, and Kathy Hattori president of Botanical Colors.

We dyed California Cloth Foundry’s sustainably grown to sewn in America fabrics and garments using organically certified natural dyes to achieve a rich background color for printing. With the expertise and guidance of Lydia Wendt, original print designs with non-toxic inks made from natural dyes, were created. The result was a lush, complex layering of colors and print designs created completely from 100% natural materials.
