*Natural Dye Workshop: Fibre Dying with Foraged & Natural Sources

Saturday, August 24th. | 10am to 5pm. | $60 *

In this workshop we will explore the vibrant world of colour extracted from
natural and local sources. Together we will identify and collect plants
which are prolific dye sources abundant in Nova Scotia’s terrain. We will
learn how to prepare fiber for permanent and light fast dyes and experiment
with methods which can turn a single dye source into a vast range of color
potential. Participants will be lead through creating a sample book giving
them the knowledge to turn their kitchen contents and back yard foliage
into rainbows of colour!
