This natural dyes class is in the heart of NYC, but you will feel like you've been transported to another world. Join Paper Fashion founder Katie Rodgers, and Earthen Warrior founder Susanna Taylor for an afternoon of reveling in natural colors, sipping cocktails, delighting in the late September air, and creating your own one-of-a-kind naturally dyed objects. Choose from a combination of tote, silk pillowcase, and silk scarf that you can take home and use and wear.
This event will take place on the gorgeous garden terrace at the Paper Fashion studio on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.
You will learn about the art of natural dyes from Susanna, who has studied from masters in New York City and as far away as the Amazon jungle and deep in the mountains of Oaxaca, Mexico. She will teach you how to prepare your fabric for dyeing and how to make a natural dye pot. You will create a rainbow of color from the natural world. You will learn a lot and get to take home a beautiful piece of wearable art! You will also get to tour the Paper Fashion studios. You may bring other pieces of fabric or clothing you wish to dye (natural fibers only).
Susanna and Katie are both creatives living in NYC. They run very different kinds of businesses, but both share a love of nature, fashion and beautiful, colorful things.
Susanna started Earthen Warrior as a way to create beautiful garments (and sleep masks!) that are ALL GOOD. Her products are good for the earth and good for the consumer-- from the design, production, dye and marketing of the product.
Katie created Paper Fashion as a way to share her vision of the world through her art and lifestyle; a promotion and enjoyment of the simple moments in life. Celebrating nature, fashion, women, and art, Katie has collaborated with brands such as Cartier, Christian Louboutin, Estee Lauder, Harper's Bazaar, Nespresso, Winsor & Newton, among others.
