Set against the beautiful backdrop of Luscher Farm, this one-day workshop leads students on a tour of unexpected color from garden plants, weeds, flowers and trees. More info...

Oregon is in full bloom this time of year with a bright array of dye plants at our fingertips. Join us to explore the range of seasonal natural dyes that summertime presents, with hands-on lessons in plant processing, fiber preparation, and of course, dyeing! We will use non-toxic mordants, plant and animal fibers (cotton, wool, and silk) to create a journal of swatches and samples, recording the summer colors of Oregon. Students will also take home a dyed silk scarf and cotton bandana.

WildCraft is pleased to partner with The City of Lake Oswego to bring you a series of natural dyes workshops hosted at their beautiful and historic city park, Luscher Farm.
