About the event
Learn how to die fabric with natural items like flowers and grasses! Gloria Dale, local artist, will guide you through the process.
Dyeing with plants is a way to combine nature with sustainable fashion. Join us as we learn the process of natural dyeing. The class is free to attend, but it is $40 to make and take home a hand-dyed scarf or bandana. All supplies are provided, including a pre-treated scarf/bandana, one small pouch for the hapazome processing, flowers and other dye materials, small hammer, supplies to bundle dye, and instructional handouts.
Pre-registration is required to participate in the make-and-take dyeing process. Supplies are limited.
The class will take place during the Wednesday Mid-Week Farmers Market at Scissortail's Lower Park.
About the Teacher:
Accountant by day – flower child at heart, Gloria Dale has always needed a creative outlet to balance the world of numbers. When she stumbled upon hapazome, the Japanese technique of infusing fabric with the essence of smashed flowers, she knew she had found her artistic home. This serendipitous encounter led her deep into the enchanting realm of natural dyes, exploring such diverse methods bundle dyeing, immersion dyeing and eco-printing.
