Video From LIVE FEEDBACK FRIDAY: Ice Dyeing with Cara Marie Piazza

This week’s FEEDBACK FRIDAY, (our 50th episode!) was on ice dyeing with natural dye high priestess Cara Marie Piazza.

Watch the video recording here:

Cara Marie Piazza creates one of a kind textiles only using natural dye stuffs such as botanicals, plant matter, minerals, non-toxic metals and food wastes. She treats her fabrics through alchemical dye sessions, ancient shibori techniques and bundle dyeing, transforming each textile into its very own story. She works with both designers and artists to realize their natural dyeing needs as well as creates custom pieces for private clients.

Cara teaches workshops on natural dyeing (including ice dyeing) and curates unique experiences merging healing, color and art.
