with collaborator artisanal Dyer CaraMarie Piazza, fashion designer Samuel Snider, & guest chef Ana Ortiz - 10/21/18
We walked Juliette’s pollinator gardens
and river side hamlet to identify and gathered flowers to create a fall bundle dye with master artisanal dyer CaraMarie Piazza.
Our guest chef Ana Ortiz served delicious brunch bites, hot drink & our own raw honey on the frame to keep us nourished from the land. Utilitarian dishware by Furbelow & Bibelot.
Through out this relaxing workshop, our guests gently steamed petals over the outdoor wood fire pit, and learned how to treat fabrics to be able to take natural dyes, extract color from flowers and natural dye stuffs while experimenting with advanced floral dyeing techniques. Through only a little steam they experienced how to transmute assorted flowers into beautiful patterns, on the silk. This class also covered using natural additives to create cosmic patterns.
