Natural Dye Workshop
Sat, April 22, 2017, 12:00 PM – 3:00 PM CDT
Join us for a natural dye workshop celebrating Earth Day!
In honor of Earth Day, we're hosting a natural dye workshop with the textile experts behind Runway Addicts. We'll start by showing you how to use everyday objects (like fruits, plant leaves, teas, coffee) to create a variety of dyes – from vivid blues and reds to soft pinks and yellows. Next, you'll experiment and apply your dyes to different materials. Bring some objects from home that you'd like to add color to – such as, t-shirts, tea towels, or ceramic pots. At the end of the workshop, you'll leave with samples of each dye so you can continue to experiment with them.
Objects that you want to imbue with your dyes! The dyes work best with natural materials (think 100% cotton t-shirts, terracotta pots, silk hanky, or even your Chuck Taylor’s). You bring it, we’ll try it!
Also, wear clothes and shoes that can get a little messy.
