Discover the secret (and diverse) color properties of avocado seeds by experimenting with lime and baking soda, natural modifiers that alter the pink avocado hue. Every participant will receive 3 silk bandanas to be dyed with the 3 mixes and a small zine with a brief history on natural dye, general instructions and photos of common dye sources.
We will use avocado seeds donated by Avocaderia, the world's first avocado bar, who will also provide delicious snacks! For drinks, we will have mimosas with orange juice from NY plant based pioneers, Magic Mix Juicery, who will also provide a sampling of their organic cold-pressed juices!
The event will be at Celsious, a modern laundromat that is committed to keeping things clean and green (from the organic coffee they serve, to their energy-efficient washers and dryers) and that has been dubbed "Brooklyn’s Coolest New Hangout" by Vogue.
You're encouraged to bring also other items that you might want to dye.
