Description

Tie Dye with Natural Dyes from Wild Plants:

Did you know that a great source for natural dyes can be found right in your own back yard?! Roots, nuts and flowers are just a few common natural ways to get many colors. Yellow, orange, blue, red, green, brown and grey are available. In this hands on interactive and children friendly workshop, we will explore the basics of plant dyeing; how to gathering plant material, make the dye solution, get the fabric ready, different color fixatives (mordant), and how to care for your finish product. We will have handouts with additional information, color combination suggestions and recipes. During the lecture, you will experiment with various tie dying techniques and we will have numerous stations where you can dip, soak, spray natural dyes onto your chosen item. When you finish with your creation, you will walk out feeling accomplished with your own custom made garment, tote, pillow case, kitchen dish cloths, etc.

Doors open at 6:45pm. The workshop begins promptly at 7:00pm and continues until 9:00pm

IMPORTANT NOTE: Prior to the workshop please bring the item you wish to upcycle and dye (preferably white or light cream color, washed and dried, and made of 100% natural material such as cotton, linen, hemp, bamboo, wool, or silk) to Me and the Moon Boutique. To achieve bright colors with natural dyes, we need to mordant (a natural color fixative) your item in which you wish to dye beforehand. Most natural dyes do not adhere very well to the fibers and need the help of a mordant.

During registration, you can also purchase additional items to tie dye. Purchased items will be handed out at the begining of workshop.
