Floral Bundle Dye
The bundle dyeing technique layers ingredients the same way you’d make a delicious meal, full of colors, designs, and scents. Local flowers(some grown at NorthFork), leaves, exotic extracts, spices, and woods are used to ceate a beautiful water color effect on natural fabric. By rolling fabric into bundles and steaming like textile dumplings, you can create lovely Monet-esque designs. You’re invited to bring along your own valentines bouquet (dried flowers are perfect) to immortalize as well. We’ll discuss the world of natural mordants modifiers(iron and copper) and explore hammered leaf and flower prints as well.
