Small Space Art Collective, 210 Calle de Los Molinos # C, San Clemente, CA 92672, USA

About the event

In this class, participants will delve into the world of natural dyeing. You'll learn about the mordanting process, how to extract color from raw dye stuff and using post dye modifiers to create unique and captivating dyed pieces. Each participant will be able to dye a silk scarf and a small make-up bag for gifts plus a drawstring bag and a large cotton bandana for furoshiki.

Furoshiki is a traditional Japanese wrapping cloth that is eco-friendly and mostly used for wrapping gifts, carrying goods or just for decoration. While our items are simmering in the dye we will practice our sustainable gift wrapping.

This embroidery class was perfect!  The space is inviting and sparks creativity.  Cecilia is a skilled and effective teacher.  She provides you a cute little kit with everything you need! Incredibly grateful for Cecilia to hold the space for some therapeutic making time, community, and skills that I can take with me. Thank you, thank you!

"I have only attended the Fiber Club and Marbling Workshop so far am so inspired!! Small Space Collective is such a treasure in our town. San Clemente has been needing something like this for a long time. The two women who run this studio have an incredible vision. They are building a wonderful community of artists and crafters who can share and learn from each other."

"Small Space Collective is such a gem!! I was so happy to find a place to go do small artsy projects. I love that you don't have to sign up for multiple weeks but that you can just pick the workshops that you would like to go and it's easier with me with my schedule that varies all the time. I am already signing up for the next fun workshop."
