Join FIELD + Silk Peel for an afternoon workshop led by Silk Peel owner, Devin Harclerode.
Botanical Bundle Dyeing is a natural dye method in which one scatters and steams raw dyestuffs such as petals, herbs, woodchips, and vegetables onto natural fibers . The result is bright, variegated and  dreamy.
As part of the workshop, participants will learn how to bundle dye, how to forage and harvest for natural dyestuffs in Richmond, and the material histories of certain natural dyes.
Participants will leave with a 21” x 21” Silk Habotai scarf that they have designed and dyed.
