On Sunday the 9th of December from 17.00 - 22.00 Bear on Bike and Marble Matter invite you to explore the relationship between dyeing and dining.
Traditionally most food scraps have been used to give textiles beautiful color. Trying to shed light upon this circular approach to waste, we have created an event where you will dye tableware using the food scraps from the the dinner you will later enjoy.
The Natural Dye Class
We start the afternoon with a two hour natural dye class. You will learn the basics of natural dyeing and where to source dye stuff in your local environment. During the class we will work with onion, avocado and pomegranate, each ingredient representing a dish from the dinner menu. Using the peels and pits we will create natural colors and patterns on two raw silk table mats and one small table runner.
After we finish the workshop you can relax while enjoying a three course meal accompanied by wine, all prepared by the great chefs Ella and Alberto from Bear on Bike. (Menu details will be posted soon).
