Exploring Plant Dyes and Meditative Weaving Workshop at MakingCo
Please join textile artist Kate Kilmurray and I for two live virtual events in March 2022. For the first session, I will guide you through the basics of how to use natural, plant dyes as you learn to derive plant color from botanical ingredients onto your fabric loops in preparation for workshop two. There will also be enough dye left over to do an additional small item on your own.
In the second session, Kate will guide you through a meditative handweaving workshop, where you will continue to explore the connection between plant color and handmade artisanal craft as you make one 6x6 inch weaving using your plant-dyed loops.
We look forward to welcoming you to these workshops!
