Introduction to Floral Bundle Dyeing

  • Sky Studio #1602, 10350 122St Edmonton, Alberta Canada (map)

Are you curious about natural dyeing but don’t know where to begin? Join Irene for an inspiring class on the art of floral bundle dyeing. This fun and esthetically pleasing workshop will take you on the artful approach to creating lovely patterns on cloth by using flowers and other natural materials you can find in your home and garden. Just enough theory, and lots of play!  All materials will be provided along with a list of resources and books for further exploration for your natural dye journey.

INSTRUCTOR: Irene Rasetti ($135)

PROJECT: We will begin by learning about different fibres and how they interact with natural colour, and how to treat your fabric to take up the dye. We will then dive into exploration by creating our own personalized sample swatches. After viewing our results each participant will create a silk scarf of their own creation.

PREREQUISITE: None!  This is an intro class, no experience necessary
