WORKSHOP: ecoprinting with your Valentine's bouquet
Join me in the studio to uncover a rainbow of color from your Valentine's bouquet. Bundle dye your own fabric, supplied by PWS, with natural colors in this interactive, hands-on class.
Using the flowers and leaves from your bouquet, you'll create patterns on fabric. We'll roll and bundle up the fabric, then steam it; the heat transfers the colors and patterns onto the fabric, creating an ethereal design, an explosion of color.
We'll discuss the basics of natural dyeing: plants from the garden that can be used, setting up a dye bath, how to shift its color using modifiers, and more. Learn how to prepare fabric with a mordant, ensuring proper colorfastness for your dyed goods.
Leave with your dyed fabrics and a booklet with detailed instructions for creating natural dyes at home. Enjoy tea + snacks, as well as a 15% discount in the shop; natural dyeing books, supplies, and ingredients are available for purchase. Please bring your bouquet - all other supplies provided.
Wednesday, February 26th 6 - 8 pm OR Saturday, February 29th 11 - 1pm
