Enter into the magical world of natural and botanical dyeing in this Dyeing with Onion Skins Workshop. Learn the basics of extracting pigment from yellow onion skins, and brew a vat of sunshine yellow dye as a group. Each student will design and create a muslin wall hanging, 12 x 24 inches, manipulating the pattern and intensity of color through methods of fabric preparation, folding, and dye treatment. the hanging will be fixed to a length of driftwood and ready to bring home as your new favorite piece of home decor, or make the perfect thoughtful gift. A guide to natural dyeing at home will be included in the class for further experimenting at home.
