Join Chelsea of Whimsy Makes in exploring the process of natural bundle dyeing. We will learn about preparing your fabric, natural dye terminology and how you can bring these skills home. You will get to dye your own silk charmeuse kerchief and cotton Miracle Plum tote bag to experiment with how flowers, food waste and pigments interact when gently steamed onto your items, making one of a kind prints. This is a 2 hour workshop with light snacks provided.
