Bundle Dyeing w/ The Dogwood Dyer
September 29 @ 11:30 am - 2:30 pm
This workshop will introduce participants to the colorful world of natural dye plants, many of which are dual purpose edibles and have herbal/medicinal properties. You’ll learn the water wise, mess free technique of bundle dyeing with natural dye expert and educator Liz Spencer.
Natural dye basics such as mordanting, extraction, and historical context will be covered for more than 15 different dyestuffs including organic and homegrown flowers.
You’ll be amazed at the colors attainable with natural substances! Each participant will leave with a bundle dyed silk scarf, resources lists and an instructional guide on how to repeat the process at home.
All materials are included. We encourage you to bring your own flowers and plants if you wish! No previous dyeing experience necessary.
