Learning the basics of an ancient art form and practice at the beautiful Ilan-Lael Art Center!

An Eco-Centered Craft — Natural Dyes offer the best of so many worlds. The arts, crafts, nature, cooking, science, and math. If you’ve ever looked into it, you might have been intimidated (e.g. fiber-types, scour, mordant, temperatures, quantities, and of course, so many dyes?!?). At this experiential workshop you’ll learn the basics so you can go home, ready to experiment with a wide range of fiber-fabric types, mordants, and natural dye-stuffs.

Jeanine Ertl, of ANINI Designs will instruct us as we dive into a brief history of natural dyes, fabric types, and process followed by hands-on practice of mordant, dye and rinsing.

• A Booklet — “Intro to Natural Dyes”
• Fabric Samples from Natural Dye Pots
• 3 Scarves to Dye — your choice: Chiffon Silk, Habotai Silk, or Rayon-Bamboo (Vegan)

PERFECT FOR A DIY-learning opportunity, friend’s-fun-date, or a creative experience! Jeanine will have other scarves, as well as natural dye kits on-hand, if you’re interested in buying more to dye on-site or at home.
