Earthen Warrior is available for private natural dye classes, natural dye classes held as part of a Pop-Up, event, wellness location or retail space.
A typical dye workshop consists of about 5 different natural dye substances that are used to color a textile, creating a full rainbow. This would be any of the items on the Natural Dyes page such as medicinal flowers, turmeric, chlorophyll, onion skins or indigo. The participants are invited to bring stained or tired clothing from home to reinvigorate with natural color. We provide at least one object for dyeing such as a silk scarf, a tote bag, a silk pillowcase or another useful or wearable object. We also provide strips of fabric so participants can see the difference between natural fibers. Susanna teaches about the natural dye process and encourages students to get their hands in the color and explore. Some tie-dye techniques are taught to create interesting patterns on the fabric. We also incorporate different flower dyeing techniques such as hapazome (flower pressing) and bundle dyeing where flower petals are steamed onto fabric.
Classes can be tailored to the setting with colors, techniques, and duration.
If you would like to discuss an idea, please reach out to Susanna at firstname.lastname@example.org or via the contact page.
