Sustainable Dyeing with Plants - August 3
August 3, 2:30-5pm
1503 Carley Rd. Springdale, AR
Join Rachel Denbow at the Gingiber Studio for a Sustainable Dyeing with Plants workshop! Explore the surprising bursts of colors offered up by the most humble of flora, experiment with the variety of colors given from one dye pot, and create your own dye journal to document the process and chronicle the colors of the day.
We'll use both everyday dye stuffs such as avocado pits and yellow onion skins as well as dye extracts found in the midwest. You'll walk away with a trio of cotton market totes, fabric samples from each dye pot, your own dye journal, and a sample dye extract to take home and explore.
Aprons will be provided in class but please wear clothing and shoes that you wouldn't mind accidentally getting some color on. Gloves will be provided.
Class will include light refreshments and the best kind of company. Come with a friend and make it even more fun!
