Colour Me Local Natural Dye Workshop
August 17 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm$40
Curious about plant-based dyes for fabric? Learn about mordanting, shifting the colour with pH and temperature, and dye plant identification. Each participant will get a strip of the raw silk to dye, or bring your own pre-mordanted fabric. Beginners and experts all welcome.
The workshops are subsidized, and cost $40 for materials. Registration is mandatory through Renfrew Park Community Centre: Saturday August 17 (#225461)
Please note that the workshop is held at the Alder Eco-Arts Hub (2750 East 29th Ave).
The Alder Eco-Arts Hub is an East Vancouver Fieldhouse Studio generously donated by the Vancouver Parks Board, and shared by Still Moon Arts Society, Resurfacing History, and the Still Creek Streamkeepers. We are funded by a grant from the BC Arts Council – all our workshops are subsidized. The building and bathrooms are accessible, with no stairs and wide doorways.
