Slow Fashion: Overdyeing Your Closet with Ellie Rivkin
Teacher: Ellie Rivkin
Looking to refresh your wardrobe with a pop of color, or cover up a pesky stain on a favorite garment? In this workshop, hosted at Earth & Sky Farm in Oregon City, textile designer Ellie Rivkin will walk you through basic knowledge of common fibers used in apparel, plus a few hand simple sewing techniques you can use to “refresh” pieces in your closet. Students will select a couple garments to overdye in any of the 3 natural dye pots available during class.
Students will be notified of dyestuff colors 2-3 weeks before class. No previous experience necessary. Open to students 16 & up.
