2010 Fungi Dye Symposium - Fabric Printing with Fungi

I was delighted to have the opportunity to take a worksop on fabric printing with fungi dyes, held at the 2010 Fungi Fiber Symposium. The workshop was held by Anna Homs and translated by Nilia Bañares. I have dyed yarns and fabric with fungi dyes but didn’t know it was also possible to use the fungi pigment for fabric printing.


The polypore is cut into small pieces and then heated in a small pot of water.


Handcut Stamps were made using clay.


The polypore pigment solution is drained through a cloth.


The pigment is scraped from the cloth and put into a small plastic glass.


Add some alum and white glue to the pigment mix.


Apply some of the fungi dye pigment mixture to a stamp using a paint brush.


The fungi dye pigment can be used to paint or print onto paper, cloth or leather. Use a hair dryer to dry the pigment.
