Fabric Alchemy: Introduction to Natural Bundle Dyeing

Working outdoors under the canopy of the trees, come explore natural dye color alchemy, the magical process of extracting color from Nature’s bounty and infusing it into fabric.

This is an introductory class on the simple, striking and water conserving method of natural bundle dyeing fabric.  This method, also known as Eco Printing is also beautiful in its sustainability since food and floral waste can be used and it makes such sparing use of raw dye material and precious water.  Traditional dyeing requires substantially more dye material and water volume.

The results are unique, unexpected and always inspire wonder. Bundle dyeing essentially infuses the plant dye matter into the fabric, making each bundle a poem composed of Nature’s markings and materials.
