Pleasure Medicine Series - Natural Dyes Workshop with Ayo Ngozi

Art and Science :-) 
Natural Dye Workshop at Centro Ashé Farm.

I really enjoyed this 3 hour workshop. I am inspired to start dyeing fabrics and experimenting with herbs/spices around the house. I would have to say the turmeric, expresso and red cabbage had the most vibrant and saturated results. 

Ayo toke us through the dyeing process from start to finish and explained how to modify the fibers to achieve different results. We dyed wool and an inexpensive cotton yarn. Red cabbage, turmeric, expresso, and Spirulina gave the wide variety of colors below. I would recommend this workshop for total beginners!
