Spring Eco-Prints + Salt bath scrub making
Today, I am sharing a few of the beautiful photos captured by Emily Sandors photography from Our Botanical Dye and Aromatherapy Workshop in Los Angeles. We only host this workshop a few times annually, about one time per season, excluding winter. It has been interesting to see the colors that are available seasonally, and how we can use plants and food waste to dye our clothing.
We had a fantastic group of guests join us from all over the city, who were interested in learning more about natural dyes as well as creatives in their own right from calligraphy to fashion illustrators and beyond. At the start of the workshop, I share little bit about my background in interiors and painting textiles. Then, we discuss natural dyeing. I am always looking for ways to live more in sync with nature and botanical printing is such a fabulous way to create a textile repeat and infuse your clothing with natural colors.
I tend to create patterns that are both organic and kaleidoscopic, so those are the methods that I teach. Each guest brings their own artistic perspective and sensibilities to each piece.
