Class Description:Join us as we work with dyes harvested from last year's garden, and learn the knowledge and skills to grow your own dye plants this spring! Natural dyes are a delightful way to immerse yourself in a creative act in unison with plants, in this workshop we will dye with flowers and plants that thrive in the local climate, as well as learning which plants can be wild harvested for natural color. We will go over how to grow and harvest some of the most popular dye plants, the general practices for working with natural dyes, and each participant has the option to take home seeds for starting their own dye garden. No prior experience needed.
