Join Jeanine Ertl, of ANINI Designs, at Julian's newest and most-fun-farm, Fort Cross Old Timey Adventures. Just a few minutes from downtown and tucked under a canopy of old-growth Oaks, we'll be gathering for a 3 hour "Intro to Natural Dye" Workshop.
Natural Dyes are super-popular right now, and for all the right reasons!
An Eco-Centered Craft -- Natural Dyes offer the best of so many worlds. The Arts, Crafts, Nature, Cooking, Science + Math.
If you've ever looked into it, you might have been intimidated (e.g. fiber-types, scour, mordant, temperatures, quantities, and of course, so many dyes?!?). At this experiential workshop you'll learn the basics so you can go home, ready to experiment with a wide range of fiber-fabric types, mordants, and natural dyestuffs.
We'll dive into a brief history of Natural Dyes, Fabric Types, and Process followed by hands-on practice of Mordant, Dye and Rinsing, learning the basics of an ancient art form and practice.
EACH STUDENT WILL RECEIVE:
* A Booklet -- "Intro to Natural Dyes"
* Fabric Samples from Natural Dye Pots
* 2 Scarves to Dye -- your choice: Chiffon Silk, Habotai Silk, or Rayon-Bamboo (Vegan)
PERFECT FOR :
A DIY-Learning Opportunity, Friend's-Fun-Date, or a Creative-Experience! And, I'll have other scarves, as well as Natural Dye Kits on-hand, if you're interested in buying more to dye on-site or at home.
