Exploring Natural Plant Dyes

with Joann Darling

Saturday, June 1, 1 – 4 pm

$75 members / $80 non-members (includes handouts and dye samples to take home)

Why is it that the colors from dye plants feel so comforting? It may be because they reflect nature Herself. In this workshop you will learn how to extract beautiful warm colors from flowers, skins, roots and barks. Together we will explore the myriad of colors that can be obtained from the plants in your gardens, meadows and forest. You will learn through a step-by-step how to process and prepare the plants, wool fibers and dye baths. Samples and thorough handouts provided.
