Dyeing to Wear It: Creating Community through Color
Create your own wearable art! Its as easy as 1.2.3.
1. Silk: This class will focus on the design and function of the classic silk scarf.
2. Hands: Each design will be its own unique and beautiful piece of wearable art made entirely by you.
3. Colors: Each color is hand crafted from natural, raw materials and extracted without the use of harmful chemicals.

“Dyeing to Wear It” is an interactive workshop where participants will create a beautiful and versatile piece of wearable art. Classes are infused with storytelling by the artists, filled with the textile history from the region and around the world, and how this history intersects with our shared American culture. It is a fun, free, and interesting social event open to everyone.

Please note- This event requires 3 hours for the full process so please plan to be at the library from 10am-1pm. There are limited spaces for this event and no registration so arrive early!

“Dyeing to Wear It” is taught by Rhonda M. Fazio of Dyer Maker Studio. This program is supported in part by a grant from the New Bedford Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
