Ashley Eva Brock

Natural Dye Workshop

Sunday August 21st 1PM - 4PM

$80

Oak galls are a very versatile dye material. On cotton, it yields an earthy gold color. On silks, a shimmery gold. It can be used as a base layer to mordant your fabric in preparation for other natural dyes. And when an iron mordant is added, it can create black.

In this class, you’ll:

- Learn how to make the dye 

- Experiment with different dye techniques with provided fabric swatches, and 

- Dye at least two natural fiber garments you brought from home. More if there's time and dye left. Silk is recommended  

PLEASE NOTE: 
This workshop will take place at
