Intro to Natural Dyes

Sunday June 26

Other dates...

2:00 PM  –  4:00 PM


The first dyes that we used as humans were from natural materials. These came directly from the earth in the form of berries, flowers, bark, and sometimes bugs! Depending on water quality, the fibers used and the amount of heat applied - a whole rainbow of color can be achieved from things we find in our environment. This class will look at the history of natural dyes as well as an overview of some of the most well known dye plants and insects.

Participants will get to experience the process of dyeing cellulose fibers in the provided natural dye vats. This class is built for all levels of experience. 

$30, $20 for garden members
