What you'll do

During this 4-hour class we will learn how to prepare natural dyes for brush-dyeing. You will learn how to dye various handmade papers using a variety of natural dyes and mordants. At the end of the session, you will have a beautiful stack of colourful papers to call your own! There are limited days this experience is offered, but send me a message if you would like to schedule something and I will try my best to accommodate your request.

I am a book artist, letterpress printer and papermaker with an MFA in Book Arts from the University of Iowa Center for the Book in the US. I have spent the last few years teaching historical methods of papermaking specific to India and learned about natural dyeing through paper. I have taught natural dyeing for paper in the US and Sweden and look forward to sharing my knowledge with you.

Where you'll be

The workshop will take place in a full-equipped professional bindery Johan built from the ground up in the basement of a brick building that used to be an old textile mill. The bindery overlooks the waterfall that the building sits next to. We will be working in the bindery, as well as just outside it, right beside the edge of the water. Its an experience you won't forget.

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 4 guests aged 18 and up can attend.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

More tips

No prior experience needed for this class. If you are comfortable in Norwegian, my husband Johan can translate for you. When you turn into the driveway, it appears as a dead end. Keep left and continue until you see a painted sign saying KunstHallden. This leads to a parking lot where you can park.
