Bursts of color and spontaneity are key in this workshop. Whether you are a fan of traditional tie dye or prefer something a bit more geometric, this workshop will encourage participants to capture the bright colors of summer for year round use.
Join Amanda for this fabric dyeing workshop and go home with a set of 4 custom dyed, reusable cloth napkins. Using fiber artist grade dyes will result in vibrant colors with staying power. The most exciting part is unwrapping your creation to see the results of your folds, bands, and scrunching. While we have an idea of how the fabric will respond to different methods, be prepared to be surprised and delighted at the uniqueness of your individual work as a piece of usable art.
In addition to the napkins, participants are welcome to bring one manageable personal item to dye. (Anything the size of a t-shirt or fashion scarf would be appropriate)
The dye we are using needs time to properly set, so items will be send home in plastic bags with instructions for rinsing/washing after 12-24 hours. The dye is formulated for plant fibers - additional items brought to this workshop must be 100% cotton.
*While we will make every effort to make this experience as mess-free as possible, please wear clothing or bring an apron that is appropriate for the task.
