About the event
In this introduction workshop, participants will get a good understanding into the world of natural dyeing. We will discuss the mordanting process, start a couple of dye baths using locally available plants, dye some samples, play with color modifiers, explore shibori folds and create a final project.
At the end of the course, you will take home several fabric samples, a tote bag naturally dyed by you, and an informational booklet for you to reference when dyeing at home.
If you’re looking for a more immersive workshop where we go through the full process from beginning to finish and work with more dye baths, please check out the Fundamentals of Natural Dyeing workshop happening in June.
This workshop will occur over the course of two evenings. The first session on the 20th and the second session on the 21st for a total of five hours.
20th April from 6pm to 8.30pm and 21th April from 6pm to 8.30pm.
The workshop will taught in English but any questions can be clarified in Portuguese.
