Silk Bundle Dye Workshop 9/15/18

from 50.00

September 15th from 12-2pm

Bundle Dyeing is a technique of using plant extracts, herbs, flowers, minerals and other natural components to color textiles. This specific workshop focuses on dyeing with silk.

In this two hour creative exploration we will be teaching you about silk, the different colors produced from each source, showcasing some patterns we have achieved and guiding you to create a one of a kind masterpiece. This beautiful process is beginner friendly and truly marries science and art together ~

Each piece is one of a kind. Some designs will look abstract and kaleidoscopic others will have more printed looking leaf designs present. The final product depends on your choices and process.

Silk is not only revered for its ability to hold color but is great for your health (filled with 18 amino acids), skin and hair. This anti-bacterial textile regulates temperature, keeping you cool in the summer and warm in the colder months. The protein structure is strong and resistant to tears and stains. We source our silk from ethical manufacturers with respect to the laborers and environment.

After wrapping our pieces up to steam they will need 2-3 hours in the steam basket and then will set for 1-2 days. We encourage you to come back to pick up your piece at your convenience. Shipping is available for out of town visitors.
