Petals and Pigments Bundle Dying with Maggie Pate
Students will create a silk scarf that is bright and unique using dried petals from seasonal flowers, food waste scraps, and pigments from natural dye extracts. In this steam color dye technique, each attendee will lay out their design then bundle their fiber into a roll and steam bath the piece. After 1 hour in a steam bath, the scarves will reveal brilliantly saturated atmospheric patterns. Pre-registration required. Registration closes Thursday June 23 at midnight.
$95/$85 (WKC members) all materials included.
