Join us for an afternoon Natural Silk Dyeing workshop at Slow North's shop featuring local artist Carol Hargus of Soul Studio. With Carol's guidance, you will explore the world of eco-printing, a technique using plant based dyes in combination with leaves, flowers and other natural materials to create abstract and unique imprints. You'll return home a gorgeous, one-of-a-kind silk scarf thats made from truly sustainable materials, plus the skills to continue eco-printing at home!
Claim your place today! Due to limited space, there are only 8 spots available.
We strongly recommend dressing to get a little messy. Please wear clothing you don't mind embellishing with some accidental plant dye!
