It Isn't Easy Being Green - SOLD OUT

In the Natural World, we have many shades of green. But when using plants as a source of Natural Dye Colors, the color green is very elusive. In the first part of this workshop, students will apply base colors to their samples. The second half of the workshop will focus on overdyeing with several traditional blues (including Indigo and Woad) to create a range of greens.


Prerequisite:  Open to all levels

Skill Level Required:  All levels welcome

Homework:  None
