Date: Sunday, May 14th
Time: 1 – 3pm
Join us on the farm with Rebecca Kelly to bundle dye a luxurious silk charmeuse bandana. We will use flowers, kitchen produce and herbs to dye the silk! Your scarf will make a gorgeous present for you or a loved one!
We will sip lavender lemonade and munch on divine lavender shortbread cookies as our fabric brews!
Participants will forest bathe and forage on the farm for materials for your own personal future dye experiments.
Resources and bibliography will be shared to all participants.
Light rain, please bring umbrellas and rain gear. We will reschedule if there are heavy rains.
Ages 16 – Adult. This is a terrific workshop for family members to enjoy together!
