I recently received a grant from the Surface Design Association which will cover the tools and materials for a two-day natural dye workshop for low income individuals. I am volunteering my time so that means I am able to offer it for free to scholarship students! Others are invited to participate for only $75. Are you in? Scroll down for time and location details.
Please send this newsletter to any organization or individual you think might want to participate, too.

ABOUT THE ACCESS ART PROJECT//
This workshop is a part of the Access Art Project which makes art education available to low income individuals in the form of free workshops by way of financial support from granting bodies and sponsors. After designing and organizing a comprehensive workshop based on skills that I can personally volunteer my time for I seek out financial support so that people who would otherwise be unable to afford extracurricular art classes may take them at no cost.
Feel free to email me with any questions and below are two posters in PDF form if you know of good place to post it - and thanks!
