Additional Information: Instructed by:
Golds, greens, yellows, browns, and maybe an orange, peach, or red. Before synthetic dyes colors came from the natural world; plants, insects, minerals, fungus, lichens, etc. A famous example is the dark denim blue from the indigo plant. This program is a study of the colors produced from plants found locally. We’ll explore two to three plants, how and when they can be harvested, and how they can be used to create a natural palette. This program is intended for anyone, 16 or older, interested in dyeing with natural materials regardless of experience level. All dyeing materials will be supplied including fiber. Please bring 3, quart or larger, glass jars with secure lids. Please wear clothes that can get dirty and sturdy, closed-toe shoes as we'll be harvesting some of the plant materials for use during this program. Additionally, this program goes over the lunch hour please plan to bring a sack lunch. Laci Prucinsky
