Flower Farm Dyes at Sweet Delilah Farm
Tuition: $160 | Materials: $30
This one-day workshop brings plant-dye enthusiasts out of the studio and onto the farm! More info...
Students will be working outside, harvesting and deadheading, learning which plants and flowers yield excellent colors in the dye pot.
We will experiment with color combinations, non-toxic mordants, and plant and animal fibers to add to your journal of swatches/samples. Students will leave with recipes, swatch book and a hand-dyed silk scarf & cotton bandana.
This workshop will take place on a farm on Sauvie's Island. An exact meeting location will be emailed with more details to students one week prior to the forage.
