Naturally dyed Waxed Cotton

  • Textile Lab 146 Main Street Beacon, NY, 12508 United States (map)

Did you know that more than 300 million tons of new plastic is produced every year and less than 10% is actually recycled?  Make re-usable  food wraps  with Textile Lab and  reduce single use plastic in your home! In this workshop we repurpose textile remnants into waxed cotton food storage wraps using natural dyes and local beeswax.  Learn about organic indigo, shibori resist dyeing and how to wax cotton fabric. 

Participants recieve instructions and materials to create unique wax wraps in 3 sizes
