Spring is here! Now that we weeded all of that oxalis out of our garden, we decided we should do something fun with it! Last month, we had a little natural dye workshop at St. Cyprians. We used fava leaves to make a nice mossy green, oxalis (sour grass) for a vibrant yellow, and onion skins for a rusty orange! Take a look and try for yourself!
1. Gather your natural colors! Try onion skins, fava leaves, oxalis, beets, purple cabbage, avocado pits, or anything else your heart desires.
3. Rinse you white clothing in cool water, and once the vat of natural dye looks ready dip, dunk, and let your cloths soak (at least 5 min) based your desired color intensity. (the longer, the brighter)
