At the Weaving Way Community gathering Kayla Powers from Salt Textile Studios, talked to us about traditional and contemporary dyeing techniques using plants from your local area.

I am delighted to announce a bonus practical event to compliment the meeting; an online workshop to guide you step-by-step through the process of dyeing cotton potholder weaving loops with plants. Any fiber artist is welcome to join this workshop!

Please join myself and Kayla for this two hour online event, where we will talk through:

  • the inherently sustainable and non-toxic dyeing practice that can be applied to all plant based fibers and fabrics
  • participants will receive thorough recipes and a list of supplies which can help support your natural dyeing journey moving forward
  • learn the practical steps to start or to build on your own loop dyeing experience.

We are in excellent hands with our workshop host. Kayla is a place-based artist living and working on the East Side of Detroit. She creates naturally dyed, handwoven textiles with locally grown plants and natural fibers. Her work is rooted in a deep connection to the natural world and to the long tradition of craft. 

This workshop ia available now as a recording only.
