This past Saturday we hosted Miranda Bennett Studio, an amazing women-run company specializing in plant-dyed apparel and textiles, in the KKDW Showroom. As part of KKDW's Summer Workshop Series, the MBS Natural Dye Team lead a workshop on the natural dye practice of Eco Printing, a beautiful, spontaneous technique that can be adapted to a multitude of elements sourced in the home, or as was the case this day, from the KKDW shop floor. As an extension of Miranda Bennett Studio's sourcing initiative to utilize only Zero Waste dye-stuff, everyone learned to rust dye with steel refuse and Texas Pecan wood shavings--byproducts straight from the KKDW shop. All the students achieved incredible, organic patterns and natural colors on a Zero Waste Square Pillow case or Table Runner, both constructed with textile remnants straight from the cutting table of MBS, composed of fabric qualities such as Silk Noil, Velvet, Linen and Silk Charmeuse. We closed out the workshop with a spread of cheeses, breads, fruits, and more; feasting and reveling in our new knowledge together.
