:: INTRO TO NATURAL DYE :: SAMPLES + SCARVES :: 

Natural Dyes are super-popular right now, and for all the right reasons!

An Eco-Centered Craft -- Natural Dyes offer the best of so many worlds. The Arts, Crafts, Nature, Cooking, Science + Math.

If you've ever looked into it, you might have been intimidated (e.g. fiber-types, scour, mordant, temperatures, quantities, and of course, so many dyes?!?). At this hands-on, experiential workshop you'll learn the basics so you can go home, ready to experiment with a wide range of fiber-fabric types, mordants, and natural dyestuffs.

Join me, as we dive into a brief history of Natural Dyes, Fabric Types, and Learn the Whole Process.

We'll Scour, Mordant, Dye and Rinse together, learning the basics of an ancient art form and practice.

EACH STUDENT WILL RECEIVE:
* A Booklet -- "Intro to Natural Dyes"
* A Fabric Sample from each Natural Dye Pot
* 2 Scarves to Dye -- your choice: Chiffon Silk, Habotai Silk, or Rayon-Bamboo (Vegan)

This workshop is perfect for a DIY-Learning Opportunity, a Friend's-Fun-Date, or a Creative-Weekend-Experience! And, I'll have other scarves, as well as Natural Dye Kits on-hand if you're interested in buying more to dye on-site or at home.

A LITTLE BACKGROUND

I am a teacher at heart. Always have been.

Each grade in school I thought: "I'd love to do that!!!" And as each year progressed, I thought every age/grade level was EVEN better.

By the time I was at UC Berkeley finishing up my BA in English and Ethnic Studies, I finally thought, "Nah, I'll join the Peace Corps instead."

So I did. And I ended up in a tiny village in the rainforest in Suriname, South America. And guess what my new community wanted most?! Help re-building a school...starting an After School Program...learning English...learning how to farm more efficiently...learning how to write grants for future projects.

Education is the key to Exploration, Self-Expression, and our Collective Future.

It is the whole Universe.

Long story, short. I came home, worked in the Non-Profit/Education field. Had three kids.Moved around the state of California. Homeschooled. And then found this new path...where I'm returning to the Learning-Teaching Cycle once again to teach what's dear to me in this moment ~ Weaving and Natural Dye Workshops.
