Join Megan Roach, co-founder of Parliament and maker of Adventure Textiles, for a morning of fiber and color. We’ll be exploring the magic of achieving a natural green from barks, flowers, fruits and roots. Come prepared to learn how to set up natural dye pots, dye with three yellow producing dyes and over-dye with indigo and iron to achieve bright greens and saddened olive greens. This workshop will cover safety/clean up procedures, how to prepare dye materials as well as where to purchase dye stuff. Each participant will leave with 90 grams of dyed fiber samples to fill in a small dye journal.
Date: Saturday, March 11th from 10am-1pm
