Bring your fiber, textile, or clothing item to the Studio to dye with indigo.
In ten Saturday workshops from September to May, we design and sew four garments using four natural fibers (cotton, linen, wool, and silk) to create a complete outfit. Drafting simple patterns and sewing by hand gives us the opportunity to center ourselves and practice a meditative way of working. Over the course of the year we experience different sewing techniques, plant dyeing, and embroidery as we create our own unique fabric and garments.
This plant dye workshop will highlight the plants and dyeing projects that are especially characteristic of fall. The day will start with an end-of-season harvest of flowers, leaves, and roots from our biodynamic dye plant garden. Back at the Studio, we will dye a variety of natural materials with our harvest from the garden.
