About the course

Dyeing your own fabric can give new purpose to some of the food scraps you may have at home! In this course I will provide you with everything you need to know about how to begin your own natural fabric dying process by walking you through how I made four different dye baths out of avocado pits & skins, strawberry tops & red onion skins, coffee grounds, and turmeric. We will go over what materials you will need, what colors you can create, and a few different folding patterns to make beautifully dyed masterpieces!

Hello! My name is Arianna and I am a multidisciplinary artist, scholar, and organizer. I recently graduated from Hampshire College with a BA in Visual and Performing Arts Curation, and a Certificate in Arts Administration from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. I am currently living in my home state of Minnesota, and I am excited to share with you my knowledge of theatre, print, book, and jewelry making. I have taught workshops to people of all ages in these subjects, and I have been a youth tutor for three years. I enjoy learning new things and making new things, and I hope my students share that excitement.
