Join us for an afternoon of fun as we explore the world of natural dyes!

We’ll start by learning about different kinds of dyes you can find right at home and in nature before moving on to the process on how to prepare them for dyeing. We’ll go through creating several dye vats using natural dyes! You’ll have the opportunity to make dye swatches and jot down notes so you can continue to experiment with natural dyes at home!

Once our dye vats are created, we will move on to dyeing several pieces where you’ll have the option of choosing between the different natural dye colors to create your one-of-a-kind pieces. You’ll be guided through a few techniques including folding and specific timing of the dyes to get the best results for each piece.

All materials for this workshop will be provided and you'll leave with several of dyed pieces + the knowledge and inspiration to continue dyeing at home!
