7.13.24 Hapazome Dyeing Workshop 6-7pm


Join Lucy Butler at the height of summer blossoms… the perfect time to explore the art of Hapazome, the Japanese technique of pounding flowers and leaves into fabric. This 1-hour hands-on workshop will teach you how to prepare cotton fiber for dyeing with natural dye, create a floral composition, and successfully smash plants into your fiber. You will leave with a beautiful, one-of-a-kind tote.

Age range: 12+

Do students need to bring something to class? optional: students can bring their favorite hammer. It also does get loud, so they may want to bring noise-canceling headphones
