Natural Dyeing for Holiday Gift Giving w/ Cara Marie Piazza

In this relaxing Sunday afternoon workshop, you will learn how to dye with locally grown flowers.

Through gently steaming petals, we will learn how to treat fabrics to be able to take natural dyes, extract color from flowers and natural dyestuffs while experimenting with advanced floral dyeing techniques you can all do at home. Through only a little steam you will learn to transmute assorted flowers into beautiful patterns, on your fabric. This class will also cover using natural modifiers to create cosmic patterns and pH shifts on your garments. The class will come with one pre-mordanted Recycled Cotton Tee ( Please email your size at registration to piazza.caramarie@gmail.com) along with cotton swatches to test on. If you would like to add an organic cotton handkerchief please let us know, they will be available for purchase.
