Please join the Mesquite Arts Council as they welcome local artist Rachel Muldez to teach us about traditional ways to dye fabrics. Like many indigenous cultures around the world. The art of dying items from a natural source is a primitive method. On Saturday, October 7 from 10-12 PM, learn the chemistry that makes blue Jean blue. This workshop will allow participants to dye cloth and wood fibers using Indigo. Participants will watch as their fibers turn blue, with oxygen, right in front of their eyes. Cloth and other fibers will be provided. Participants are welcome to bring their own fibers in as well.
