Dyeing & Printing with Botanicals 1F22
Come learn the basics of natural dyeing and printing with botanicals in this hands on workshop with local herbalist and natural dyer Maggie Ruth Haaland!
In this workshop, you'll sink into the energy of late summer with a seasonal herbal tea and then get your hands into the dye pots! Maggie will also touch on the mordanting (fabric preparation) process and the use of natural dye as a ritual and self care practice. Hope you will join us for this afternoon spent creating and learning in community!
*This class meets outdoors in one of our Canopy Classrooms. Please dress accordingly.
