Saturday, April 6, 2019 - 10:00 am - 1:00 pm


Join Megan Williams, maker of Adventure Textiles, for a morning of fiber and color at Blandford Nature Center.

We’ll be exploring the magic of achieving natural colors from onion skins, avocado pits, tea, pomegranates and turmeric. Come prepared to learn how to set up natural dye pots and dye with four different dyes. This workshop will cover safety/clean up procedures and how to prepare materials for dyeing. Each participant will leave with enough dyed fiber samples to fill in a small dye journal.
