Event description

Description

Learn how to reduce food waste by turning food scraps into natural dyes. From onion skins, to carrot tops, to avocado pits and skins, participants will learn how to extract color from food waste. In this hands-on workshop, we will cover the mordanting and binding process, demonstrate resist dyeing techniques, and discuss how to use natural pH modifiers to change the color of our dye vat . You will walk away with a worksheet that shares the wide spectrum of colors that can be extracted from left over vegetables and herbs in addition to the custom textiles created during the workshop!
