As soon as you drive on to our 37 acre property I would like to make you as comfortable as possible whether that means pouring a drink or taking a walk around. Once aquatinted, you or you group will choose what you would like to dye (a set of 4 napkins per person is standard). We will them move on to the preparation stage for dye, I will help get all the dye ready to go after I explain to you and your group how to fold your napkins for the desired result. As all of the group is finishing, we will pin a tag with your name on it to ensure that everyone leaves with their own creation. As all the fabric is placed in the dye and it is setting, the guests are more than welcome to take a hike around our trails in the back (~2 miles total), we can start the fire up for some casual time just to enjoy being outside, or you can play a range of games we have set up outside (ladder ball, giant jenga, bocce ball, yard yatzee, corn hole, and more). After the dye has set, each person will get a chance to open up their napkins and see what they have created! Next comes pinning them up on the line to dry! As they are drying guests can choose some more activities around the land! I hope you will enjoy the process and sitting back and relaxing outside as much as I do!
Hello, My name is Elizabeth and I live, work, and create on the tiny farm here in Hudson, NY. I have been experimenting with and learning different techniques on fabric manipulation. With a degree in Fine Arts, focusing in Accessory Design, I have learned skills from footwear making, handbag making, fabric dyeing, and many more. After moving from NYC to Hudson I have been given the chance to start exploring that creativity that space allows and I would love to help you share that same expression!
We would love to provide an option of a cheese board, smores, or a veggie plate upon request.
Water will be provided for all guests and feel free to bring any drinks that you would like for your experience.
We have a van that is available to pick up and drop off the party from Hudson, NY to the tiny farm property upon request.

We will be working outside on the 37 acres at the tiny farm. We will be dyeing in the backyard and are more than welcome to walk around the back woods, see the sculptures in the fields and look at some art that is placed around the property. Bathrooms are located inside the house and available for all guests to use.

You will be leaving with something beautiful of your own creation! All napkins will be unique to the person who made them and will vary from the samples. I will of course take pictures of you and your party and would be more than happy to share them with you!
