Fun times ahead with this Natural Dyeing workshop :) So this workshop explores a lot of the same things as the one I'm offering at Unwind, but will have a little more of a focus on natural printing (or eco printing) using local flowers. The Window has a community garden near by so I'm hoping to spend the bulk of the workshop there (weather permitting). Students will also learn how to make dye stock solutions using both found plants and store bought natural dyes for immersion dyeing, and we'll use shibori resist methods to create pattern and design. We will be experimenting with mostly silk but I'll have wool and other fibre there to sample with too.
There are four places left in the class. To sign up call The Window at 694 629 8396

PS I recently sent eight scarves to The Window to sell there (some are shown above), but they are also great examples of what students will be learning. Go check them out if you're curious.
