Urban Foraging & Bundle Dyeing as a Healing Ritual with Antonia Perez
September 7th, 12-4pm
238 Franklin Street , BK 11222
Join me and Antonia Perez of Herban Cura for a day of foraged, medicinal plants and natural dyes.
We will learn about how we can cultivate weeds and invasive plants from our urban environment to make medicine and dyes. Antonia will lead us in getting to know each other and our plants guide us on how to create our own tinctures to take home.
For the dyeing portion of class we will learn how through gently steaming petals we can treat silk to be able to take natural dyes, extract color from flowers and natural dye stuffs and experiment with advanced floral dyeing techniques that you can all do at home. This class will also cover using natural additives to create cosmic patterns.
Take aways: A small swatch collection, a foraged medicinal tincture. New friends.
