Come explore the hidden color in our landscape by learning about native plants and their potential for dyeing. We will discuss how to forage local plants responsibly as well as how to broaden your color palette using modifiers. Participants will come away with a selection of botanically-dyed samples as well as a finished textile and instructions on how to repeat the process at home. All materials provided.
