Natural Dye Workshops at Confituras

Natural Dye Workshops at Confituras

from 60.00

This spring, I'm teaching a series of natural dye workshops at Confituras in South Austin. Join me 3 evenings to learn how to dye fabric from your kitchen and garden, with cochineal from Mexico, and practice resist methods in a shibori and indigo workshop. Each class will be unique so you can sign up for 1 or all 3!

Each person will take home 2 big silk scarves that they've dyed, a workbook to use at home, and samples in cotton, linen, and wool. You're also invited to bring items from home to test dye such as knitting yarn or a vintage blouse- just make sure they are made from natural fibers like silk, wool, cotton, or linen.

We'll serve light refreshments and workshops are BYOB so bring your favorite sips and invite a friend to sign up–then you'll have someone to practice dyeing with over the summer.
