You may have seen one of those social media videos where a garment is magically transformed using some common household stuff. Maybe you’ve even given it a try, only to find it’s not quite as easy as it seems from a 30 second video!! In this introductory workshop on November 18th, you’ll learn a few tried and tested techniques for creating eco-friendly dyed fabrics using easy to find materials you are probably throwing away in your kitchen. You’ll talk mordants and binders, fibers and modifiers, and create some beautiful natural color. This workshop is free of charge but space is limited. Registration required by phone (716-785-6234) or email (
