Join us as we explore the art of growing, harvesting, and dyeing with plants grown here in Minnesota. Locally grown fiber and dye is gaining popularity as a skill, and you’ll learn how to process plants and flowers from the forest, prairies, and your own gardens to create beautiful hues. By the end of class you’ll have learned the basic techniques of cultivating your own natural dye garden and making dye from it. Participants will need to bring three different 100% natural fibers to dye (linen, silk, wool, cotton), that weigh no more than 1 pound all together. Fibers can be purchased at a fabric or craft store.
