Bundle Dyeing with Botanicals

  • BareHands Artisans Belmar New Jersey United States (map)

Join us for a relaxing and vivid afternoon of bundle dyeing to extract color and pattern from plants. Students will imprint fabric with the botanical dyes of petals, leaves, and roots. We’ll reveal the wealth of color hidden in common dye plants such as coreopsis, marigold, and cosmos. After dyeing a few swatches in a variety of colors, each student pattern their own silk scarf with this fun, ecologically friendly, and aromatherapeutic way to explore botanical color. Students may bring an extra natural fiber fabric or garment they wish to experimental with. Pack a lunch and beverage and be ready to delve into this artistic experience!
