Natural Dyeing on Cotton Fabric :: Thurs, August 24, 2023 10-4pm
Fast fashion culture is made of disposable goods that exploits humans, environment and material resources. Let’s challenge the system. In this 1 day workshop, you are invited to repurpose and refresh gently used linens and clothing by adding color with plant dyes.
You will learn:
- Natural dye basics for cellulose fibers (cotton, linen, hemp)
- Mordants and fiber preparation
- Making dye baths from extracts, home grown plants, and kitchen waste
- Techniques for adding textures and patterns to fabrics
INVESTMENT: $100 includes all materials needed
Please note- if this workshop has your heart singing and you cannot afford to join me, be in touch for a scholarship, sliding scale or work trade option. There is a spot reserved in each workshop for reduced or waived fee.
