Event Details

Natural dyeing 101 will introduce participants to the fundamentals of natural dyes, working with exotic dyes, flowers and others composted from the kitchen to create unique designs. We will explore the mess-free, water-conscious technique of bundle dyeing, steaming natural dyes onto fabric. This workshop will be taught by our friend Danielle from the brand Collective Hand, who has recently relocated to the beach from Brooklyn! She’s passionate about eco-conscious methods of creativity and makes beautiful, ethically sourced artisan goods. Be sure to check out their website to get tons of natural dying inspiration!
Natural dye basics will be covered, including mordanting (priming) the fabric and extraction of dyes. Attendees will also receive a resource lists and instructional guide on how to repeat the process at home.
All materials are included in this workshop including two pieces of pre-mordanted raw silk fabric for you to experiment with during class. These two pieces will be sizable enough for you to use as wall hangings, a light scarf or bandana, or to sew it up into a bag or pillow.
