NEW! STEM CAMP For Young Adults, Ages 12-18
Join us for a combination Science-History-Art Two-Day Workshop!
Learn about and take part in the natural dye process, from raw material to discussion of uses for finished products, including information on foraging natural materials and their effects, preparing fiber for dyeing, and the process of dyeing. Participants will take home their own dyed skeins (no flat cloth, we are dyeing yarn). All materials provided.
Please note, participants will work around heating elements and boiling water and are responsible for their own safety.
