While in Seattle for the Slow Flowers Summit, I attended a natural ribbon dyeing workshop hosted by Susanna Luck of Nettle Textiles. Check out her website! It’s so beautiful 😉
It’s been so long since I did something like attend a workshop for a beautiful skill like this! What a delight it was, and Susanna led the course with ease and humor and was full of information and knowledge she was eager to share. I learned so much and feel inspired and ready to begin my own dyeing now.
Cute vintage clothespins with calligraphy were provided along with a sweet set of ready to go ribbons. It’s always a nice touch to gift workshop attendees with a gift box of items conducive and complementary to what they’re there to learn. That’s a lesson for myself! I’m going to start creating a beautiful gift box for my workshop guests too!
Natural ribbon dyeing is catching on and there are some beautiful web sites that offer their ribbons. I am excited to begin a new collection of perfectly dyed ribbons for our Posies!
