Natural Dyeing Workshops
July 22 & 29, 10:30am – 1:00pm
Explore living colour with Spontaneous Atelier. In this workshop we will explore the age old art form of making pigments for cloth using botanicals from our local landscape. Using traditional and exploratory methods we unfold earthen alchemy into cloth, a magic process. This art form cultivates a deeper perspective of our relationship to our environment we call home! Open to all ages of colour lovers.
Workshops are FREE, family friendly & drop-ins are encouraged!
