I’m leading a workshop featuring my favorite native Texas dye: Cochineal. Cochineal is one of the few natural dyes derived from an insect, acquiring its rich red carmine color by feeding on the prickly pear cactus. Workshop participants will learn to prepare fabric for dye, ready a dye bath, alter color using dye modifiers, and practice resist techniques.

Each participant will be provided with a scarf, scrap fabric to practice with, and all are encouraged to bring one small 100% cotton, linen, wool, or silk item. Please note that synthetic blend material will not yield desired results.

This workshop is 3 hours long, snacks, refreshments and mimosas will be provided, feel free to BYOB. Cost of workshop includes all materials and a natural dye cochineal kit to take home.
