We’re surrounded by nature and wrapped in textile. And from the beginning of time, everything dyed was dyed naturally. Natural dyes are the root of all modern color. This knowledge is fading away, but not if we can help it.
These workshops include some lecture & presentation, but are mostly hands-on in order to provide participants with a full experience. Please wear comfortable clothing. Bring a lunch and water. Class size is limited. Wear clothing you don’t mind getting messy. No prior knowledge or experience required. No external dyes, inks or paints are used in eco-printing. Come curious and willing to participate.
