Natural Dyeing with Food Scraps

ThursdaySep 12 2019 @ 6 PM

Not your average natural dye workshop! Join us for a hands-on workshop and learn how your food scraps can be used to create color and dye fabric before they end up in a compost pile. Beyond the basics of dyeing, we’ll also discuss food waste, waste reduction and how you can compost in NYC. Participants will learn how to extract color from food waste and leave with their very own natural dyed handkerchief. This workshop is best suited for adults.
