Natural dyeing 101 will introduce participants to the fundamentals of natural dyes, working with exotic dyes and others composted from the kitchen. We will explore the mess-free, water-conscious technique of bundle dyeing, or steaming natural dyes onto fabric.
Natural dye basics will be covered, such as pre-fixing (mordanting), extraction of color, and fabric maintenance for optimal vibrancy. Each participant will create their own silk eye pillow which will be sewn and returned after the workshop. Attendees will also receive a resource lists and instructional guide on how to repeat the process at home.
No previous dyeing experience necessary and all ages are welcome!
Price: $80 to make your own silk eye pillow (8" X 4") filled with organic lavender, chamomile and flax
