Bundle Dyeing Workshop
Join Emmaline Molloy of Valley Botanicals at Mother Botanical & Shop in Big Sur for an afternoon of bundle dyeing. You will get to learn about this free-form technique using flowers (provided by Mother Botanical) + plant waste on a silk scarf/bandana, including rose petals, eucalyptus, marigold, onion skins, hibiscus flowers, turmeric, blueberries and more. We will discuss the basics of natural dyeing, including how to prepare your fabric with a mordant to ensure the colors hold over time. Each participant will leave the workshop with a unique botanical silk scarf/bandana and a detailed, instructional handout for future bundle dyeing projects at home!
No previous plant dye experience necessary!
