Practical Natural Dyeing

NIKI LIVINGSTON

   I have a very special workshop offering for you this month.  In honor of Fashion Revolution Week and Earth Day I'll be holding two sessions of practical natural dyeing at the studio on April 22nd. Fashion Revolution Week is a movement calling for a fairer, safer, cleaner fashion industry.  Supporting the spirit of sustainable fashion I invite you to bring clothing you already own to my studio and refresh them with natural dyes!  Each session will be three hours and we will focus on the process of practical dyeing. I'll be guiding you through the process of creating lasting natural color. This day will differ entirely from my previous workshops as we will be hands on the entire session.  Session 1 is 10-1pm Session 2 is 2-5pm  100$ per person • Space is very limited
