Natural Fiber Dyes
The natural world around us has an abundance of color to discover. Students will use a variety of plants, including kitchen scraps and local plants, to learn the basics of natural dyeing. Each student will have the opportunity to customize their own unique dye bath to capture the essence of their experience at the Sou’wester. There will also be a walk to learn about plants in the area and their medicinal uses. On Friday night from 7-8pm there is an optional meeting to learn how to prepare the fibers for dyeing. Each student will be able to dye a mini skein of yarn or a silk bandana.
