Intro to Botanical Dyes with St. Louis Community College

Instructor: Jenny Murphy

Event Navigation

Natural dyes are a beautiful and sustainable way to bring color to textiles. From vegetables, nuts, seeds and even tiny bugs, you can achieve beautiful browns, oranges, yellows, reds, purples, and blues. In this workshop, you’ll learn to create dye baths from natural materials. Participants will experiment with the plant-based dyes to create hand-dyed fabrics of various colors. Participants will leave with a test strip from each dye bath to keep for future reference. Please bring in one to two items from home to dye (a scarf, small shirt, or thin skirt) made of 100% natural fibers (white cotton, silk, or wool).
