Natural & Bundle Dyed Textiles

Natural & Bundle Dyed Textiles


Saturday, November 3 from 10 am - 1 pm

Let’s naturally dye heirloom-worthy textiles for our home & body. In this 3 hour workshop, fiber artist Sarah Eichhorn will teach us how to dye textiles with plants and common kitchen scraps as well as how to use them to create unique prints and patterns through bundle dyeing. We’ll cover how to mordant your fabric, recipes for natural dyes, and the different types of dye stuff you can use from your kitchen and garden. You’ll walk away with a beautiful naturally dyed silk scarf, a bundle dyed kitchen towel, and some natural dyed samples to use as inspiration.

*Please note refunds on event bookings are not available, however, if you can’t attend you are more than welcome to send someone in your place. Read Fine Print for more details.
