Natural Dye + Shibori Virtual Workshop - May
Calling all artists and designers!
Join us for a morning immersed in Natural Plant Dye alongside Shibori techniques in our virtual studio a.k.a the comfort of your own home
When: Sunday, May 2, 2021 at 10am-11:30am PST (90-minute virtual workshop time)
What will we do?
In this virtual workshop, textile artist Hilary L Hahn will guide you through the basics of natural dye. Learn how to look for natural fabrics, prep your botanical dye bath, and create a personalized design with Shibori folding techniques. You will be starting out with a bandana but there is enough dye to up-cycle an additional piece of clothing. Up-cycle a tee or pillow cases and make them new to you!
We will be creating our dye baths with all natural materials. Our kit includes two easy to work with botanical dyes: madder root (which comes from the Rubia Cordifolia plant that has been cultivated as dye for centuries) and chamomile flowers (which are frequently used as an herbal tea but they also make a wonderful natural dye).
Natural Dye + Shibori Kit: Your materials for the virtual workshop will be shipped to you within 1-2 weeks prior to the class.
Your dye kit will include:
- One 100% organic cotton bandana OR tea towel
- Madder root powder
- Dried Chamomile
- Rubber bands, wooden shapes, & clothespins
- One small fabric pouch for testing your color
- Option to add-on an additional bandana for only $5, please let us know if you'd like additional items
This virtual workshop + dye kit makes a great Mother's Day gift and can be a fun bonding activity between friends. Connect with other creatives and learn to create natural dyes from botanical ingredients!
