Charleston, SC Natural Dyeing Workshop
Natural Dyeing Workshop with Smile and Wave
Saturday, Nov 2th 2pm-4:30pm
Explore the surprising bursts of colors offered up by the most humble of flora, experiment with the variety of colors given from one dye pot, and create your own dye journal to document the process and chronicle the colors of the day. We'll use both everyday dye stuffs such as avocado pits and yellow onion skins as well as dye extracts found in the midwest and beyond.
You'll walk away with a trio of cotton market totes, a sampling of fibers dyed in the same vats to study their color intake, and start your own dye journal while learning about the various elements needed to shift color along the pH spectrum.
Aprons will be provided in class but please wear clothing and shoes that you wouldn't mind accidentally getting some color on. Gloves will be provided.
Class will include light refreshments and the best kind of company. Come with a friend and make it even more fun!

Partial refunds (50%) are available up to 2 weeks prior to the class.
