I am so thrilled to inform you that there will be Bengala Dyeing Workshop at a Community Market in Sebastopol on 11/7 from 10am! Bengala is a mud dye made of natural and sustainable material found in soil. Bengala dye is safe for the environment and for you. Also, no heat is necessary in the process, so children can enjoy dyeing as well. 😊
Takafumi Tomita (Taka), from Japan will lead this workshop! When Taka came to California last year, I had the privilege to hold his class about the lunar calendar which is a Japanese traditional calendar at my house in Scotts Valley. It was a wonderful opportunity for us to relearn the cycle of the moon & the earth. Now he is coming back again, and is willing to share the knowledge of Mud Dyeing to the local community! This will be a very rare chance to learn about the natural dyeing and his philosophy about nature and beyond. I hope many people can come to his workshop. It will be an enlightenment experience!
