Bring home the magnificent gold of Golden Rod! Join experienced dyer, Kelly Gaskill, in an exploration of the wide range of color that can be extracted from our local plants. This class will have an emphasis on local dye-plant identification and will walk through the botanical dyeing process from harvest to final product. Participants will create several dye baths, learn techniques for color extraction, and how mordants help set and change the final color. This hands-on class will result in 4-5 take-home samples of colors on wool, silk, or cotton as well as a few botanical prints on cotton or silk.
