Eco Dyeing Class
August 10, 2019 - August 11, 2019
Join us at Warner Mountain Weavers, in Cedarville Cailifornia, August 10-11, for two days of Eco Printing outside under the big sky! Eco Printing is a sensuous dye technique true to its name. It is both environmentally friendly and works like a dye print in which the image and energy of the dye plants are transferred directly to the textile. You’ll learn to work with wild harvested plant materials (leaves, flowers, bark, etc.) in a beautiful and expressive way. We’ll use this magical technique to make living, breathing textiles that have personal meaning and are deeply connected to the places we call home. You’ll finish class with a merino/silk loop scarf and a couple of pure silk pieces that can be used in a variety of ways.
This class is taught by Cory Gunter Brown, an artisan and empath who has practiced the entwined arts of sacred adornment and the handmade her whole life. She was born and raised in East Oakland and comes from a radical and creative family of dancers, machinists, artists, and activists. She is now teaching natural dye workshops to adults and children, producing a select few naturally dyed items each month, and making plant infused body oils in collaboration with the plant beings from the land where she lives in Mendocino.
