What's Included

Join Telluride fabric guru Kathy Green at her indoor/outdoor studio to experiment with various natural and eco-dyeing techniques. Using a variety of natural dyes, mordants and color changers, students will be able to experiment and create a number of different results. Students will be asked to bring some foraged plants and kitchen scraps with them on the first day (think tea bags and avocado pits). Then, after Monday’s class, the group will supplement their dyeing options by taking a foraging walk to collect more natural materials. Tuition fees include six silk scarves; students are also welcome to bring their own items to dye. There will be additional scarves, as well as cotton and silk fabric, available for purchase during class. Students should consider wearing comfortable walking shoes, sunscreen and bug repellent. Dress in layers, and a bring a lunch and snacks.
