Sustainable Color: Natural Dyeing with Plants

  • Broad Studios 1023 Springdale Road, Unit 6D Austin, TX, 78721 United States (map)


Taught by Rachel Denbow of Smile and Wave!


Learn to extract vibrant colors from plants while also creating a set of beautifully dyed market totes. You'll learn how to coax color without muting it and ensure a vibrantly dyed product with the use of mordants. Walk away with three totes you can use at the farmer's market or on your next trip to Barton Springs and experiment with more dye projects at home with your takeaway dye journal and kit!
