WORKSHOP SERIES 2014

dresden

Dresden dyer’s guild coat of arms includes stirring and turning sticks, a reel for winding fabric, and a rake.
We felt it appropriate this season to begin a workshop series in different studio/workspaces and give each
its own little dyer’s guild.

Our first workshop will be held Saturday, May 31st in the dye shop of Parsons-Meares, Ltd., a company
producing state of the art costumes in New York City.  The workshop will focus on natural dyes in costume,
primarily colors of the shakespearean era. Learn basic natural dyeing techniques using colors that would
have been used in the theater including a naturally fermenting indigo vat, madder, weld and cochineal.
Leave the workshop with knowledge, color samples and a cotton tote bag to keep your sheet music or dance
clothes in. We hope to see you there!

MAX CAPACITY: 12 students

COST: $65

TIME: 10-4 (we will take a break in the afternoon-food nearby, kitchen space in shop.)

HOW TO SIGN UP FOR WORKSHOP: Pay ahead using paypal and send payment to
