Natural Dyeing with Flowers and Kitchen Scraps
June 6, 2020, 2-3:30pm Eastern
Learn the art of natural dyeing with flowers and kitchen scraps! We’ve teamed up with fabulous Brooklyn-based eco-dyer Cara Marie Piazza who is famous for creating one of a kind textiles using botanicals, plant matter and food wastes.
In this fun and relaxing online class, you will learn how to dye with healing flowers and kitchen scraps to create your own creative masterpieces on cotton and silk.
Through gently steaming petals, food wastes, and ingredients you can find in your kitchen, we will learn how to treat fabrics to be able to take natural dyes and experiment with floral dyeing techniques you can all do at home. Through only a little steam you will learn to transmute assorted flowers into beautiful patterns, on your fabric.
We will email all participants the Zoom link for the online class.
Don’t forget to catch Cara Marie on our next FEEDBACK FRIDAY on May 29th, 9am Pacific, 12 pm Eastern. RSVP here.
