Bundle Dye Workshop (Peekskill, NY)


Bundle Dye Workshop (Peekskill, NY)

This workshop will take place at soothsayer in Peekskill, NY located at 101 S. Division St. (above the fantastic Peekskill Coffee House).

  • Sunday, July 23, 2017
  • 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

In this 2-hour workshop, participants will learn the basics of bundle dyeing with natural materials. We will work with natural dyes including local, everyday dyestuffs like onion and avocado skins and sourced materials like madder root and logwood. Participants will also learn how to choose and prepare textiles for dyeing, how the process of bundle dyeing extracts color from natural materials, and how to fix color to cloth. We will look at my personal collection of bundle dyed swatches for color inspiration and participants will use the techniques learned in this workshop to create a bundle dyed scarf. 

While the bundles are steaming we will experiment with natural dye modifiers like vinegar, soda ash, and iron to see how the addition of these elements can affect naturally dyed textiles.

Everyone will leave with a bundle dyed silk scarf, a collection of naturally dyed swatches, and the knowledge of how to bundle dye at home.
