Oaxaca Cochineal Dye Workshop in Durham, North Carolina

Thanks to Wendy Sease at INDIO Durham, Omar Chavez Santiago is coming back to North Carolina in mid-October for a trunk show and natural cochineal dye workshop. He will also be demonstrating at Meredith College in a textile residency program.

Cochineal is the insect that produces carminic acid (think Campari, lipstick, yogurt), that tantalizing RED that the Aztecs, then Spanish adored.

Featured are:

  • Tapestry-loomed rugs hand-made with 100% natural dyes
  • Indigo blue dyed wool scarves and shawls in time for winter
  • Gorgeous hand-bags and totes, all with natural dyes

From October 27 to November 6, Omar is traveling to Philadelphia, Pa, and New York, NY, to exhibit, demonstrate and sell beautiful tapestry rugs at various locations. I’ll be posting the schedule soon. If you live in the NE Corridor, stay tuned!

  1. Good morning sir/madam
    I’m very interesting about this workshop(oaxaca-cochineal-dye-workshop-in-durham-north-carolina). Could I know about whether the reservation has ended? And I still have some doubts about the payment of fees.
    Is all the accommodation (shared room) in Tokyo about 500 US dollars? And all the workshop will cost about 3000 US dollars without air tickets?
    And could I know which language will be used in this workshop, English or Japanese?
    Best regards
    Port Lyu
