This workshop will introduce participants to the colorful world of natural dye plants, many of which are dual purpose edibles and have herbal/medicinal properties. You'll learn the water-wise, mess-free technique of bundle dyeing with natural dye expert and educator Liz Spencer. What's more, you'll learn techniques and actions that set her practice apart from other natural colorists, focusing on sustainability, working with local plants and environmental resiliency. Natural dye basics such as mordanting, extraction, and historical context will also be covered. You'll be amazed at the colors attainable with natural substances! Each participant will leave with a large bundle dyed silk scarf, resources lists and instructional guide on how to repeat the process at home. No previous dyeing experience necessary. All materials are included!
