About the event

Join textile artist Rachael Duran for an immersive natural dye workshop where you'll discover the vibrant world of kettle dyeing using natural dyes.

Throughout the workshop, Rachael will guide you through the entire process, from mordanting to preparing the dye bath, dyeing your chosen items, using post-dye modifiers, and providing aftercare instructions. In this hands-on experience, you'll have the opportunity to dye a variety of items, including a silk scarf, a zipper pouch, and a throw pillow cover.

Rachael's expertise and passion for textiles will ensure that you not only have fun but also gain valuable knowledge about the art of natural dyeing. 

This workshop is designed to be accessible and engaging for all participants, regardless of skill level. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced textile enthusiast, you'll find the process both easy to follow and creatively fulfilling.

Get ready to unleash your creativity, explore the beauty of natural dyes, and leave with unique, hand-dyed creations that you can proudly display or gift to others.

Limited to 8 participants for a fun and intimate experience. Get your ticket today!

For adults and teens when accompanied by an adult.

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."
