In this workshop at The Hendrix, participants will learn about various plants and flowers that can be used for natural dyeing and explore the ways in which color can be extracted. Using a method called eco-printing, in which plant matter is placed on top of fiber, bound, and then steamed, color and form are transferred to the cloth. Students will learn about the different ways to treat fiber in order for the pigment to stay in the fabric, as well as the different types of materials that can be used with natural dyeing. This workshop is a great introduction to the fascinating world of natural color, allowing students to experiment with texture and composition within a textile. Each student will walk home with a unique naturally dyed silk piece that can be used as a scarf or wall hanging.
