In Natural Dyeing Fabrics, students will be exploring indigo dyeing with a natural fructose vat and bundle dyeing, a technique that transfers common natural dye materials like marigold flowers and onion skins onto mordanted fabrics.
In this class we will learn natural dye terminology, ways to prepare your fabric for the best results, as well as a little chemistry and history behind these dyes.
Natural Dyeing Fabrics with Allison Sheldon
Saturday, August 15 – Sunday, August 16; 1:00 to 4:00 pm
Natural Dyeing is a beautiful, alchemic process that can transform the textiles in our lives. In this class, students will learn several natural dye techniques, including how to make a natural indigo vat, and how to use plants in our community to make dyes. Transform your connection with plants and add meaning to the textiles in your life!
We hope to hold this class in person, while implementing health and safety measures. We will be limiting the class size and communicating with students regarding these new procedures.
