Upcoming Classes & Events
Natural Dye Study Lab Outdoors
Third Wednesdays in June, July and August, 10 am to noon
Northwoods Community Garden, Nicolet College grounds
Over the course of three months, we will use plants grown at the Northwoods Community Garden to learn about making natural dyes. We’ll learn about making extractions from plants, dyeing on various types of fiber and cloth, as well as how to make lake pigments from exhausted dye vats to use for painting or as ink. There will be prepared dyeing cloth available to purchase and recipes for doing your own cloth preparation for future sessions, if you prefer. Sign up for one or all sessions. Please note: No supply fee is included in initial cost, as participants can pay the instructor for prepared cloth or contact her ahead of time to learn what size/how to prepare their own fiber/cloth for dyeing.
