Botanical Bundle Dyeing with Jesikah Orman (Silk Table Runner)

Saturday Sept 8th 2:00pm


There is an incredible wealth of color potential all around us! Come explore natural dyeing and how to create beautiful, unique textiles using plants, flowers, and locally foraged materials. Bundle dyeing is an excellent introduction to natural dyeing and no experience is necessary. Fabric is bundled with the dyestuffs and then steamed to create beautiful and surprising pattern variations. It is a simple, water-wise technique and is such a thrill to unwrap when it is done! 

We’ll discuss various techniques for prepping fibers to ensure vibrant and lasting results, different bundle dyeing techniques, and resources for continuing your natural dye journey at home. Participants will leave with a beautiful raw silk table runner they’ve dyed with plants and flowers. All materials are included in the class fee.
