Plant Dyeing Party with Rachel Snow

Join us in this fun hands-on workshop-style party where you will get to create beautiful one of kind botanically dyed fabric.

We will do three different plant dyeing techniques on natural fiber pieces of cloth that can later be used in a variety of ways.

Potential methods we will do are:
Botanical printing/bundle dyeing
Dip dyeing/shibori
Print Pounding

We will talk a bit about some of the ways you need to prepare fabrics beforehand, but this will mostly be an opportunity for you to try out the different dye methods.

Come make some pieces of plant-dyed fabric to take home and enjoy.

Taught by guest instructor Rachel Snow

Rachel Snow​

Rachel Snow is a textile artist, clinical herbalist, and midwife located in Louisville, Colorado. As a printmaker, she found herself continuously incorporating plants into her relief work, and wished there was a way to turn her prints into fabric she could wear. (Turns out there is!) This ultimately led her to discover the art of botanical dyeing, which was the perfect outlet for her completely plant and flower-obsessed mind. When she is not harvesting flowers and trashing her kitchen with her dye projects, you can find her catching babies, in her garden, or spending time with her husband and two kiddos.
