HOLIDAY SERIES: Naturally Dyed Furoshiki Wraps and Mini Everlastings
Furoshiki is a Japanese style of wrapping items in reuseable cloths. You will dye your own, and create a small everlasting swags or wreaths to embellish your wrap designs. A wonderful alternative for holiday gift wrapping that can be used again and again.
11 am - 3 pm
INCENSE SERIES: Kyphi
10/16/2020 and 10/30/2020
Kyphi is an ancient Egyptian incense/perfume which is warmed to release the fragrant molecules rather than being "burned". We will be creating a basic Kyphi incense formula, which can be reimagined in various ways on your own. It was traditionally made over a period of weeks, one ingredient at a time, with prayers being offered throughout the process. We will be preparing it over 2 ceremonial sessions, set to the lunar cycle, imbueing it with our personal intentions and group offerings.
6 - 8 pm
INTRODUCTORY SERIES: Natural Dyeing 101
Learn the basics of natural dyeing including the types of fiber, scouring, mordanting, and adjusting colors. We will create a sample board with silk ribbons. This is the prerequisite for our other dye classes and will give you a good foundation to begin your own exploration or to continue with more education at the Flora School.
11 am - 3 pm
