Dying to try natural dyeing? Learn about the vibrancy and range of yellow dyes that can be achieved from the Spanish Moss plant!
In this comprehensive workshop, students will learn about the historical and contemporary use of Spanish Moss, a plant with a fascinating story originating in both South Florida and Latin America.
Participants learn how to extract dye from the plant, explore tie-dyeing, and create a unique small piece to take home!
These classes are designed to promote the continuation of uncolonized Pre-Columbian traditions from Black and Indigenous communities in South Florida and Latin America, while making a space for contemporary exploration.
In this series of natural dyeing workshops led by Diana Eusebio, her mission is to provide skills and knowledge for a lifetime! All materials for sample making and learning the technique are included.
Any additional materials will need to be supplied by the student based on their vision.
Refund & Cancellation Policy: Attendees can request refunds up to 24 hours before their class start date. Classes must meet a minimum enrollment number to run.
