Pepperwood Preserve- Botanical Dye Bundles Workshop

October 28, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

“Join us for this special workshop to experience the magic of plant colors! In this two-hour workshop led by educator and natural dyer Lisa Rogers, we will cover the basics of natural dyeing. We will use dried botanicals and an insect (cochineal) to create a custom, bundle dyed silk neckerchief/bandana – yours to keep, or to gift. Lisa will also guide us through using fresh flowers from her dye garden to get flower prints.

You will learn about:

* How to prepare different fabrics from scouring to mordanting

* Modifying colors with pH and iron

* Natural dyes found in the kitchen, compost bin and available at stores

All materials are provided. Space in this workshop is limited, register early to secure your spot.

Please note, this workshop does NOT include Leaf Ecoprinting – this is a separate process, and may be offered as a workshop in the future. “
