Dye a Silk Scarf with Bengala Dye

Date/Time: Wednesday, November 1, 10:00AM – 12:30PM

Chiaki O’Brien
Bengala dyes are natural Japanese dyes made from soil, which are environmentally safe and fun to use. Learn about the history and cultural significance of this unique dye style as you dye a beautiful silk scarf. This is not a soaking dye, so come ready to knead the material as well as be creative! Play with the material by knotting, folding, tie-dyeing… nobody knows exactly how their work will turn out. It’s like opening
Christmas presents when dyeing is finished and the finished scarf is revealed! Have fun being creative! There will be 12 colors of dye and some tools for everyone to play with. The dye contains natural rubber latex, so this is not a good class for students with a latex allergy. Students are welcome to dye more than one scarf if they wish to purchase more from the instructor for $10 per scarf.
