Workshop: Intro to Botanical Dyeing

This program has been canceled and will be rescheduled for a later date. 

Get started with natural dyeing at home in this two-part class! This workshop is designed for novice natural dyers who want to figure out the best ways to start dyeing with natural botanicals at home with accessible tools and materials. Students will receive materials for two silk scarf projects using home grown natural dyes. Each session will introduce important concepts and techniques for sourcing dye materials, setting up with simple equipment at home, and fun ideas for using botanicals to create unique patterns and designs. Students will complete their projects outside of class and have a chance to share results of their first project. Suitable for ages 16+.

This is a live virtual class taught over Zoom. Students need a strong internet connection and a device with video capabilities.

Kits (a $40 value) are included in the class fee. Each kit includes two silk scarves and home grown dyestuffs. Students must also provide a dye container (many options, discussed the first week). Kits will be available for pick up at the American Swedish Institute from June 28, or can be shipped for an additional $10 fee.

Registration for this kit based class closes June 22.
