Plant Dye and Embroidery Residency
In Suzanne Herbert-Forton’s Plant Dye and Embroidery Residency, students will learn about historical and/or scientific aspects of dying fabric with plant dyes. The specific arts integration focus will be determined by the instructional needs of the individual school. Students will dye fabric with plant dyes and create embroideries on the dyed materials.
Residencies range in price, from $2,000 and up, but we can use your available budget and ‘work backward’ to create a cost-effective residency for your school. We may be able to assist you in securing grant and funding opportunities.
Residencies are tailored to your needs but usually include:
• A kick-off assembly (performing arts only)
• A required orientation meeting and planning session
• A set of workshops for classes of up to 25 students each
• A student culminating or sharing event
• An evaluation meeting
