Mariana Leyva (@studio.kuhu) will begin the workshop by giving us a brief introduction of the history of natural dyes and her personal connection and experience with this particular kind of eco dye.
She will break down the concept of bundle dyeing and the importance of process, as well as the different types of flowers, plants, and organic material that are most effective when using this method. You will then have plenty of time to play and experiment yourselves to create your own bundle dyed designs on silk scarves!
The workshop will finish up with a 101 on post-dyeing treatments and how to care and maintain naturally dyed fabrics, so you will leave the workshop with a solid foundation and practical understanding of this meditative and gentle dyeing method.
