Natural Dye Pot Luck + Modest Coffee + FLUR Bakery Open House

  • Sugar Beet Co-op 812 Madison St Oak Park, IL, 60302 United States (map)


What is a natural dye pot-luck? It’s a FREE drop-in event led by Industrious Anarchy members using indigo and local plants to dye your cloth! Bring new or used pre-washed article of clothing* or fabric to dye, or purchase fabric samples on site. Stay for a
couple of minutes, or for the whole time!

And while your fabric is dyeing, learn about how locally sourced wool is turned into yarn with demonstrations provided by Martha Brummitt whose curiosity in learning how things are made have brought her to the world of textiles.

Industrious Anarchy promotes sustainable cloth production through DIY workshops, classes, retail selections, and symposiums.

*To make sure there is enough dye for everyone, please keep items small in size.

MODEST COFFEE will be pouring free locally roasted brew while you get creative!
Modest Coffee is the love child of a local Brookfield couple, Marcus and Jenni Contaldo. They lurve good coffee and good business practices... thus their beans are ethically sourced and can be traced back to family farmers that are paid a fair price for their beans.
