In this Self-care workshop with holistic nutritionist Lena Schwen and maker and blogger Miranda Anderson, you’ll be introduced to 5 ways to simplify our health and wellness, and discuss the basics of self-care.
Then we will transition into a hands-on introduction to preparing, folding, and dying natural fabric to create gorgeous Shibori patterns in preparation for indigo dyeing. We will mix a dye vat, and learn how to prepare and set the dye and walk through the process start to finish. The dye magic will happen while you wait, and you will be able to take home your finished pieces at the end of the workshop!
During the 2.5 hour class, you will create two gorgeous one-of-a-kind cotton towels. This class is a perfect introduction into health and wellness as well as working with textile art, and learning alongside local friends! You’ll also have an introduction into the materials, dyes, preparation, and process so that you can experiment more on your own at home!
