In this beginner workshop you will learn basic methods & techniques behind the art of natural dyeing with local plants & common food waste.
We will focus specifically on the technique of bundle dyeing with leaves, dried + fresh flower petals, along with powdered extracts-- while also exploring color extraction methods with dyestuffs such as avocado pits, onion skins, & pokeberries.
You will begin by learning how to prepare your fabrics using proper scouring + mordanting methods along with recommendations for foraging local plants. Next, we will dive into color extraction methods then jump into our hands-on bundle dye techniques & experiment with sample dye vats that will be provided. Afterwards, you will gain knowledge on how to properly care for your fabrics post plant dyeing.
