In this workshop hosted by Ali Smith of Salt & Still, participants will learn the basics of bundle dyeing with natural materials. You will work with natural dyes including local, everyday dyestuffs like onion and avocado skins and sourced materials like madder root and logwood. Participants will also learn how to choose and prepare textiles for dyeing, how the process of bundle dyeing extracts color from natural materials, and how to fix color to cloth. You will look at Ali's personal collection of bundle dyed swatches for color inspiration and participants will use the techniques learned in this workshop to create a bundle dyed scarf.
Everyone will leave with a bundle dyed scarf and the knowledge of how to bundle dye at home.
