Sometimes we don’t give a second thought to what goes in the bin. But did you know your rubbish can be a treasure trove of hues, tones, and gradients? Have you tried to natural dye at home and felt overwhelmed? Or maybe failed?  Take the guessing out of capturing color and join this Natural Dye Intensive that will walk you through the process of capturing color using kitchen scraps and food waste from your home. In this class, we will go over - Preparing your fiber for dyeing with Scouring & Mordant Baths, Extracting color from raw materials, Testing for color, Modifying the color of your dye bath to multiple the hues you can create, and How to create a swatch book for yourself to catalog your work. 

• Natural Dyed Swatches
• Your own dyed cotton totes and silk Bandanas
• Maggie's e-course on natural dyeing 

Please bring an apron and wear comfortable clothing you don't mind getting dye on.

Maggie Pate's work in textiles explores the intersectional synthesis of textures, nature, and geometry. Recently, she has been focusing on cultivating a studio that is 100% sustainable and eco-friendly by extracting color from predominantly food waste from local restaurants and farms. Her work with color capturing has culminated in her first book, The Natural Colors Cookbook (Page Street Publishing), which aims to make natural dyeing and sustainable color practices accessible to all. Her latest project Feed Weave provides custom fiber installations, advocates for slow craft, and fights food waste & hunger. Before this, Maggie was a fashion model before moving on to work for a label in New York City.
