Nature’s Notebook: A Beginner’s Guide to Natural Dyes

In this workshop, you will learn about botanical colors and shapes for a more technical approach to natural dyeing. We will break down recipes to make fibers colorfast, create our own color concoction, collect swatches for each dye bath, move through an observational drawing session, extract color from local plant matter or scraps, and cover each native dye’s medicinal uses. You will leave with a notebook documenting nature’s colors, detailed recipes, and beautiful illustrations! No experience is needed in order to attend.

Colors will come from flowers, fungi, food waste, and other plant and earth-based materials. We support thoughtful foraging and community gardens.

* Please bring your own notebook to fill *
