This daylong workshop will explore easy and artful ways to apply dye to scarves. From simple techniques such as tie-dyeing, resist and salt, to interesting mark-making techniques, we will modernize this ancient art form. We will look at examples of mid-century textile designers and we’ll also be inspired by the wonderful art and nature surrounding us at Lynden.

Each student will create three wearable and uniquely painted scarves. We will also make some hand painted silk ribbon, in case you want to make a gift of one of your scarves. No experience required, and all materials supplied. Remember: using dyes can be messy. We'll supply you with an apron, but please wear clothes that you don't mind getting stained.

Bring a bag lunch and beverages and dress for the outdoors. We’ll be making use of Lynden’s 40 beautiful acres during our breaks, weather permitting.
