This workshop will be held at the Rubenstein Arts Center, in the Maker Space.


About the workshop:

We will explore how plants can create beautiful art and dye designs on textiles by just using steam!  Each student will be provided with a silk scarf or a small silk handkerchief and will take it home at the end of the workshop.  We will explore using supplies you can find in your own kitchen like onion skins or turmeric.

About the instructor:

River loves to work with kids and adults, empowering folks by sharing the creative and vocational powers of sewing and other textile skills. River is an arts and LGBTQ community advocate who turned her dream of creative and social practice into a passionate career. On most days, you'll find her in her studio, located at Golden Belt Artist Studios, designing, sewing, screen printing or outside dyeing fabric.

She has taught at The ArtsCenter, The Scrap Exchange, ArtSpace, The NC Museum of Art, Freeman’s Creative, NCSU Craft Center and many small private groups.
