March 14,15 and 16, 2014 I will be having a workshop at the nature preserve and ethnobotanical garden, el Charco del Ingenio in San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato. In this workshop I will teach how to dye with local materials such as cochineal bugs, pomegranate, walnut, and pirul.
This is a hands-on weekend-expect to jump in and create colors with me. We will have several pots of dyes going at the same time-reds, yellows and browns-and then we can make lighter shades and combinations of these colors.
Here are some photos from the last workshop in el Charco. Enjoy!
