This is an in-person program, held at The Learning Garden. You will learn about the plants that are easiest to grow and cultivate for natural dyes. You will have hands-on experience with collecting the plant matter, making the dye bath, and then dying samples of various fibers using weld, one of the heritage dye plants. In addition to the sample fibers, you will also dye a cotton napkin to take home.
This event is free, but a $5 donation is requested.
