Natural Dyeing with Avocado Pits and Onion Skins

  • Studio Atelier 319 North Albany Avenue Chicago, IL, 60612 United States (map)

Come join Joanna Aloysia and Kelly McKaig for a creative Sunday afternoon dyeing fabric. We’ll teach you how to make each of the two natural dye baths, and you will be dyeing two Habotai silk scarves (30" x 30") that are included in the price of the workshop. There will be an additional resist technique tutorial. Light snacks and non-alcoholic beverages provided.

Avocado pits dye fabric to a soft pink color and yellow onion skins dye fabric to a golden color.

If you choose to bring your additional fabric or your own garment, we ask that it is white/un-dyed and that you bring the item clean (preferably scoured). Keep in mind the fabric must be non-synthetic, so you may bring silk, wool, cotton, or linen. This natural dye will not adhere to synthetic fibers.

Let’s see what magic can happen!

Cost: $90/person with a max capacity of 10 guests
