Dye Workshop - September Full Moon

Dye Workshop - September Full Moon


From 3:30-6:30 pm on Friday September 13th, join me for an evening of natural dyes and garden fresh snacks in our backyard to celebrate the Harvest Moon!

On September 13th, there will be a full moon in Pisces, with the moon conjunct Neptune, a cosmic positioning that is incredibly watery and dreamy. Since hosting a backyard dye party has always been a dream of mine (seriously - my first dye party was on my 9th birthday in my parents kitchen, so yes I do mean ALWAYS been my dream) I figured I’d open up the doors to our garden and host my very first Full Moon Dye Party!

We will open up with a tour of the dye / vegetable garden, followed by an introduction to the natural dye process and the energetics of the plants in bloom. We will then gather with our freshly harvested botanical dyes to infuse our fabrics with plant powered colors and the energies they share. We will also take time to reflect on what we’ve been nurturing this season, and how we can bring these gifts into the next season, a truly immersive celebration of our summer harvest!

Purchase of this event includes a copy of my “Magic with Botanical Dyes” zine, one silk scarf, and one cotton scarf to be dyed with the method of your choosing. You are also welcome to bring your own, pre-washed garments or fabric to dye (must be 100% natural fibers, please limit to smaller garments and lighter weight fabrics - your winter wool sweater, curtains, or duvet cover will be too large for the pots I’ve got!). I’ll have a couple pots of fresh dyes, and the option to bundle dye (to create botanical patterns like the ones shown in the first image).

No previous experience necessary.

The event will be in Sullivan County, NY - zipcode is 12783, and address will be shared upon receipt of payment. There will be snacks, including but not limited to: fresh baked bread, homemade salsa, all the cucumber and pickles you could possibly imagine, kale salad, homemade hummus (not homegrown sorry), and cheese and cured meats from local farms. Please notify me with your payment if you have any food allergies.

Sorry, but there will be no refunds for cancellations requested after Monday the 9th. In the event I will need to cancel or reschedule based on weather, you will be given the option of a full refund or being signed up for the rain date. If a workshop has to be cancelled, I will let you know at least 24 hours in advance. Rain date is Sept 23rd, or the Autumn Equinox.
