Bundle Dyeing with Botanicals at Seward Cafe
Explore natural dyeing using steam to extract color and pattern from plants in this three-hour class! Bundle dyeing is a type of natural dyeing that involves wrapping fabric around plant materials and using steam to transfer their colors. We will learn about natural dye techniques, and suitable dyeplants that are available locally, and gather color from marigolds, coreopsis, sunflowers, and other plants. By the end of class, students will have gained a new appreciation for the natural world and created their own one-of-a-kind pieces of dyed fabric to take home.
Registration is $25 per student plus a materials fee of $7. All class materials are provided by the instructor. The class meets from 6:00-8:00 at Seward Cafe, 2129 E Franklin Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55404.
