Wednesday (Wise Guys Welcome, too!): Plant Based Tie Dye, with Rebekah Sutter.
As summer begins and plants bloom in an array of beautiful colors we invite you to come and explore the basics of plant based tie dye! During the evening we will be exploring the history and traditional uses of herbs as dyes, as well as how to use some! Herbs and plants have been used for thousands of years in all cultures as form of pigment, paints, stains and dyes for the body and handmade goods. We will explore colors from our spice cabinets, grocery stores and even your back yards, while also going over mordant (fixative) options and tying techniques.
:: We will end the night by making your own herbal dyed square piece of cloth to take home and enjoy as a bandana or alter cloth! ::
