Natural Dyeing with Cochineal

Natural Dyeing with Cochineal

Sunday, May 5
2-5 p.m.

Taught By: Shannon Green & Christy Petterson

Class Size: 5 person minimum.
12 person maximum.
If we don’t have 5 people sign up, we will cancel the class and refund your payment.

Price: $75 ($50 workshop fee + $25 supply fee)

Location: Indie Craft Experience Studio, 1390 McLendon Ave NE, Atlanta 30307

We will create a natural dye vat using Cochineal. Using natural additives, we will vary our shades and will end up with four distinct pinks to use for dyeing.

We will use Japanese Shibori techniques to create resists. Four napkins will be provided for each student to dye.

Please note: Cochineal is created from bugs so this is not a vegan-friendly activity … we promise the process is not gross at all for anyone who might be squeamish.
