On Saturday we will explore Natural Dyeing on cellulose and protein fibers using locally grown plants. On Sunday we will learn the traditions of Braided Rugs and Coil Basketry. Students will leave with a new toolkit of techniques, recipes and process notes for dyeing, and multiple projects that they will be able to finish at home.
