ClassIntro to Natural Dyes
with Kathy Colt
Kathy Colt is an Atlanta-based textile and fiber artist. While working towards a degree in Landscape Architecture in the early 1990’s, she began exploring cloth and fiber in earnest. Since that time she has continued to create with textile and fiber techniques, including nuno felting and cloth surface enrichment (most recently for her small, seasonal apparel line, Petal-una Collection). A keen student of dye-alchemy, Kathy’s work with natural dyes began in 2013 while briefly studying with Catharine Ellis, and natural dyes have now become an important component of her studio practice. Kathy has taught workshops and presented on a variety of topics including nuno felting, surface design on cloth, indigo dyeing, sustainable studio practice, and “slow” textiles. Facilitating human connection by making space for learning and discovery is a vital aspect of her life’s work.
