In this workshop we will explore the magic of eco dyeing on silk with organic materials. This process imprints beautiful color on cloth by using mordants salts, pressure, and steam while using very small amounts of water and dyestuff. Participants will learn the natural dye basics such as how to extract natural color, what are mordants and how to use them to prep cotton. We will experiment bundle dyeing with historical natural dyestuff such as cochineal, marigold, and madder root. Students will complete three cotton flour sack tea towels and leave with an instructional guide to take home. These tea towels will make great gifts for family and friends!
