Native Plants for Natural Dyes

This program will explore the methodology of dyeing fibers using native and naturalized plant species. Through lecture materials, we will cover the basics of dyeing in ethnobotany, plant chemistry, and concepts of sustainable use. We will go into the field to identify and collect some plant material, and then go through the process of mordanting and dyeing raw wool, cotton, and silk fibers.
