Join local textile artist Tami Fuller for an exciting two-hour workshop that teaches people how to use plant stuff as art-making material. Using native flowers, greenery, organic materials, and fabric provided by the instructor, students will learn how to express natural dye compounds found in the petals and stems of flowering plants to imprint them onto fabric using the "flower pounding" method. Participants will use pre-mordanted cotton and these natural materials to create an organically "dyed" tapestry piece that will stay vibrant long after winter returns. All course materials are included in the workshop fee.

  • June 19th: Flower Pounding: Pigments from Petals*

The Castellani Art Museum (CAM) at the center of the Niagara University campus is dedicated to the enjoyment and educational potential of artistic creativity. As a major resource for the visual arts in Niagara County, the CAM's permanent collection includes over 5,000 pieces of mainly modern and contemporary art, and hosts a unique Folk Arts Program supporting traditional artists and community-based cultural traditions in the Buffalo-Niagara region. 

In keeping with Niagara University's Vincentian mission, the museum recognizes and serves the diverse racial, ethnic, and religious communities of the Niagara region through the organization and presentation of exhibitions which honor and explore their artistic traditions and contemporary output. In addition to presenting diverse artistic expressions, the museum works in partnerships to explore and redefine the relationship between the museum and its constituencies.

As a university museum, the Castellani Art Museum serves the educational needs of the community,  by working with Niagara University faculty on integrative learning projects for college students and providing art education programs for area schools and cultural organizations. The museum staff works with educators to develop art-based learning programs that help to promote critical thinking.
