March Natural Botanical Dyeing
Saturday, March 16th
Join textile artist Olivia Clanton and learn the beautiful art of natural dyeing with fresh & dried flowers and other seasonal vegetation! We will experiment with over-dyeing, the process of dipping dyed fabric in an indigo vat, altering colors based on PH levels. Students will learn how to create a wide variety of colors on fabric using natural plants such as marigold, osage, black hollyhock, cochineal bugs and indigo.
Each participant will have everything they need to create two silk bandanas and will leave the class with confidence in natural dye concepts such as mordanting, identifying fibers, color interactions with indigo, over-dye and bundle dye.
All class participants receive 15% off of any purchase made at Hillfolk on the day of the workshop.
