Learn the basics of natural dyeing with Maggie & Monica through seasonal summer flowers. This class explored capturing color by giving a second life to blooms. Students will learn from local natural dyer Maggie Pate and eco-printer Monica. Students will leave with Maggie's E-course on Natural dyeing, an eco-printed scarf that they will design, and other craft & carry items like a mesh market bag, cotton bandana, and a variety of fiber swatches so they can create their own natural dye swatch book.
