Subtle pinks. Moody Greys. Sunshine Yellow. Deep Purple.
These are the colors your kitchen scraps can produce! Surprised? Come join me and explore how to apply color and pattern to fabric using food scraps. Natural dye newbies and those with experience are both welcome.
create a swatch and recipe book to help you develop your natural dye practice at home. You explore the range of colors that can be extracted from common kitchen scraps. I will introduce several techniques on how to add pattern and depth to your naturally-dyed silk fabric. An underlying theme will be how to make our artistic practices more eco-conscious in terms of toxicity along with water and resource use. During the second half of the workshop, I will guide you through creating two scarves. These wearable pieces of art will encourage you to experiment and expand on the colors and patterns you learned earlier in the day. I hope you leave this workshop with an armful of fabric as well as enthusiastic confidence about how to adapt what you’ve learned to your own artistic practice. See you there!
