From harvest and plant identification, to processing and preparing fibers, this workshop leads students through all the steps of dyeing with fresh and dried plants, with a special focus on flowers, berries, trees. and roots that commonly grow in Portland. The class will work with non-toxic mordants, and plant and animal fibers (cotton, wool, silk).
