Hot Pot Goods - Lotus Printing Dye Workshop

Register here.


Date: Sept 24th for 1 hour slots (2 -3 pm, 3:30 - 4:30pm, and 5 - 6pm)

Location: Dumbo, Brooklyn (Exact location to be emailed upon registration)

Please bring a thrifted item made out of natural materials (cotton, linen, silk, wool, etc). These will be block printed, with natural dyes, using lotus roots!

You are welcome to donate your dyed/block printed piece. The donated items will be sold through a developing project called Hot Pot Goods (@hotpotgoods). 100% of the proceeds from Hot Pot Goods, including the pieces from this workshop, will be donated to Send Chinatown Love, an organization that provides relief efforts to small businesses in Chinatown that have been negatively impacted by COVID-19. Other Hot Pot Goods garments will be on display and available for purchase!

At the end of the event, visitors will be given a lotus recipe, a list of Chinatown grocery stores where they can find the ingredients, and restaurants that serve lotus dishes!

Hot Pot Goods is a newly developed project created by Whitney Newton and Ling Ling Huang. Its mission is to support Chinatown using sustainable practices. Thrifted pieces are naturally dyed, inspired by our favorite Asian dishes such as tea eggs, fried rice, and tomato and egg stir fry. Commissions are also welcome -- provide us with a garment, and you can choose between an existing dye motif or a new dish!
