Marrakech! A city bursting with colors that inspire and delight the artist’s eye.
Saturated shades of blue and green abound in glazed zellij tiles, hand painted pottery, and the famed Jardin Majorelle. Fresh pink hues, both vibrant and subtle, are found in fragrant roses that grow throughout the city and float in Riad fountains, and in the the walls in this ancient rose “red city”. Luscious yellow and orange shades radiate from fresh produce in the local vegetable markets and the vibrant pigments in the spice and dyers souk.
This city of creativity, filled with artisans that celebrate every delicious color of the rainbow, is the perfect place to explore and experience the magical properties of pigments, and how they can be used to enhance and adorn ourselves and our surroundings through fabric dyeing. 💛
