Saturday, March 4. Eco-dyeing class with Hawaii Handweavers’ Hui at Lyon Arboretum.

Introduction to Eco-Dyeing – March 4, 2023. 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Class: Introduction to Eco-Dyeing

Description: Eco-dyeing is a technique that uses the natural pigments of plants to imprint color and images onto fabric. We will use fresh plants and a non-toxic iron solution to print onto silk fabric which we will then gently steam. The resulting images are beautiful and unpredictable revealing themselves only after rinsing in clear water.

About your instructor: Gina is a longtime hand-spinner, weaver and dyer. She currently teaches spinning and Eco-dyeing at the DAC (Downtown Art Center) in Honolulu.

Price: $60 ($15 materials fee, $45 instruction fee)
