Drink & Draw [VIRTUAL]: Rococo: Floral Dyeing

This September, Drink & Draw explores Rococo! We will be working through modern renditions of this artistic style featuring the classic elements of nature and floral patterns depicted through soft colors and curvy, botanical shapes.

Guest Artist: Taylor Augustine

Rococo art and design was rich in scenes of nature and lilting botanical forms. Florals were especially highlighted through wallpapering, murals and fabric patterning. What better way to continue to explore those delicately placed details than through dyeing with flowers in their natural form? Taylor Augustine will be sharing her passion for nature and leading us through the art of Bundle Dyeing: a holistic, magical approach to fabric patterning. These functional artworks will be beautiful additions to your home or wardrobe as well as make great gifts. So gather your unadorned linens, tea towels, t-shirts, and soft wearables and collect some spices, flowers, and leaves and join us for this alchemical event.

Suggested Materials:

  • Fabric: used or new linens, t-shirts, skirts, table runners, etc
  • Flowers or any organic matter, such as dried chili peppers, turmeric & paprika
  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Rubber bands
  • Pot and stove top 
  • place to store for drying (indirect sunlight is best)
