In this 1 day workshop you will learn to naturally dye silk using the ecoprint method.
We will be using both alum and iron as mordants to show the differences in colors based on mordants used- and leaves that were wildcrafted in late Autumn. No natural dye experience necessary.
You will go away with 2- 29" x 29" scarfs and the knowledge and instruction to recreate this magic at home.
All materials included in price.
