Curious about eco-dyeing? Always wanted to learn bookbinding? Then this weekend is for you. Start Saturday with locally gathered plants to eco-dye. We'll simmer them onto 100% cotton fiber and fabric. Taught by artist Beverly Allen, you'll learn about natural dyes, dye safety and good dyeing plants.
On Sunday, using the paper and fabric dyed the day before, you'll transform them into three bound books (chainstitch, longstitch and accordian bindings) with instruction and tips from designer, bookbinder Beth Rose.
It's a weekend filled with fun, knowledge and some aha! moments as we provide tea, coffee, treats, inspiration and knowledge. Limited spaces available.
All art supplies and tools provided. Workshop in our B&B Garage Press Studio in downtown Burlington, Ontario.
$250 per person for 2 days, $145 per person for one day.
