The Color Collective, a team of three MFA Fiber students presents Color Me Rad , a collaboration with Concordia’s Greenhouse to grow colors!
Our goal was to create the natural materials to support a non-toxic artist textile/print studio practice. The team of artists combined cultivated and locally foraged plants to form a sampling of successful natural pigments. The pigments were used to make print pastes and dye baths. The Color Collective shared their findings through educational workshops, website, classroom presentations, and lectures at related departments within Concordia University.
