Natural Dyes in the Steam Box

Course Overview

Dyeing cloth using natural materials is a magical process: Add a bit of steam and assorted leaves, flowers, and old rusty nails, and wait an hour…the results are extraordinary. Who knew all the colors of nature were hidden in plain sight? In this course, you’ll learn a bit about the history, chemistry and new innovations in natural dyeing processes and use a variety of materials that will vary seasonally. You never quite know what you'll pull out of the steam box, and working with other students allows for a wide variety of experiments and collaborations to occur. The materials fee includes three silk scarves students will complete during the course.
