This fun and beautiful workshop will introduce participants to the colorful world of natural dye plants, many of which are dual purpose edibles and have herbal/medicinal properties. We will be focusing on the water-wise, mess-free technique of bundle dyeing- using locally grown dyestuffs grown by the Dogwood Dyer as well as making use of left over floral arrangements from the Earth Tones Pop Up Exhibit at the workshop venue- Poketo Project Space as a color source.

Participants will engage in environmentally sound practices and techniques working with local, home grown organic plants as well as responsibly sourced exotic dyestuffs. Natural dye basics such as pre-fixing using soy milk and natural metal salts, extraction of color, and historical context will also be covered. You'll be amazed at the colors attainable with flowers! Each participant will leave with a large & versatile silk scarf, resources lists and instructional guide on how to repeat the process at home. No previous dyeing experience necessary and all ages are welcome.

The workshop will be held just outside the Poketo Project Space during the weekend of the Earth Tones Pop Up organized by Titania Inglis. Bring a sun hat and dress accordingly for the weather, as we'll be outside for this workshop.
