As many seek natural alternatives to carcinogenic or otherwise environmentally-unsustainable practices, plant-based dyes have become more and more popular in the textile world. We will discuss the benefits of plant-dyeing textiles, the versatility of a whole spectrum of plants (did you know onion skins make a great orange dye?), and collaboratively demonstrate the step-by-step process that will lead you to being able to dye your own natural textiles. Each participant will be provided a set of tea towels and everything needed to dye them at home.
