What you'll learn in this dye class:

Learn the beautiful art of natural bundle dyeing! In this three-hour workshop led by instructor Molly George, you'll gain an understanding of how to work with natural dyes as you explore the process of bundle dyeing.

This workshop will cover:

  • Introduction to natural dye plants and mordants
  • Introduction to protein-based and cellulose-based fibers
  • Overview of natural dyestuffs including onion skins, cochineal, turmeric, avocado skins, fresh and dried flowers, black tea, eucalyptus, and more
  • How to bundle dye on silk and cotton, including how to prepare the fabric, place the dyestuffs, bundle the fabric, and steam the fabric on a stovetop.
  • Each student will leave with two dyed pieces (a cotton dish towel and a silk scarf), and the know-how to design and create more pieces on your own.
Class fee includes instruction and all the necessary supplies and materials (including dyestuffs and fabrics).

No prior experience necessary - beginners welcome!

Refund Policy

WORKSHOP CANCELLATION POLICY

We do not issue refunds on workshop registrations.

If you register for a workshop and later become unable to attend, we will gladly offer a school credit if you notify us at least 48 hours before the workshop. We are unable to offer credits of any kind, or honor reschedule requests, with less than 48 hours advance notice. 

About Our Policy

Our workshops require a great deal of pre-planning, including ordering supplies and tools, booking staff, and making commitments to pay our instructors -- all based on the number of students who register. When students ask to cancel or reschedule at the last minute, we lose money. As a small business, we are unable to absorb these costs and still keep our class prices low.  

In fairness to all of our customers we are unable to make exceptions to our policy, including for reasons of illness or travel. If you are unable to attend a workshop at the last minute, we suggest giving your spot to a friend!

Thank you for understanding!

Great class! Joey was super helpful and I learned a lot. I think it would have been better with slightly fewer people though...there wasn’t enough room for everyone to spread out their fabrics on the table. And a couple of people used up a LOT of the dyestuffs.

Fun class. I really like the teacher but wish she’d give more examples of final results and how to achieve a desired look. For instance letting the class know Techniques for getting a lot of color and techniques for getting a little color. It was hard to know if we were using too many of the herbs and flowers, etc. or not enough.
