Wildcard Wednesdays: Natural Fabric Dyes and Shibori

July 10 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$40

Natural Fabric Dyes and Shibori

We will be exploring natural dyes created from fruits, veggies, plants and other material that you might find in your pantry or garden. We will also be covering the basics of Shibori, the ancient Japanese art form of folding and dying fabrics, though today you might describe it as “tie dye.” Students should come ready to get a little messy and bring one to two white cotton shirts – we will provide the rest!

Brinn Labs Wildcard Wednesdays (Summer Sessions) series is for Students age 13-16 and held weekly, Weds. July 8 – August 28th.

Wednesday sessions are devoted to specific maker skills, with demonstrations, instruction and projects, so you can practice what you have learned – that’s where the wildcard comes in!
