A Naturally Dyed Ribbons Workshop with Chrysteen Borja | The Crafter's Box

CHRYSTEEN BORJA
NATURALLY DYED RIBBON

Welcome to an introduction to naturally dyed ribbon with artist Chrysteen Borja of @WaverlyKnots. This workshop dives into a variety of specialty and unusual dyes, as well as unique substrates for dyeing with Chrysteen's expert guidance.

We're feeling so very inspired by Chrysteen's technique and the many ways to explore and decorate this holiday season. We’re customizing gorgeous ribbons for your garland, door wreath, Christmas tree, mantel, dining table as a runner, wrapped gifts... the possibilities are endless.

The four natural dyes featured in this workshop include logwood, wattle, cochineal (extract from a tiny bug found in the Southwest), and Himalayan rhubarb. You’ll find skeins of recycled silk sari and silk chiffon, along with pieces of our favorite linen blend and a cotton velvet. The combination of textile variations and dyes included creates a stunning range of colors from soft pastels to moody mauves. Explore deep purples, soft yellows, vibrant pinks and neutral tones.

For this workshop, we erred on the side of exploration and included lots of dye opportunities and variations in the form of extra dyes. Wanting to wrap all of your gifts this season? Add extra fabric to your workshop kit this month through our add-on his to ensure you have plenty of yardage. If you follow the directions within this workshop kit, you’ll end up with roughly 9 feet of 2 1\2 inch thick ribbon of each of our included fabric options (9 ft of velveteen, 9 feet of linen, 9 feet of sari, & 9 feet of chiffon).

We are so excited to have you join us with this project as we dive into creating beautiful textiles with Chrysteen. We would love for you to share your final product with us by tagging your photos with #thecraftersbox. Happy making.
