Learn the contemporary and historic practice of natural dyes in this hands-on workshop at The Morton Arboretum. Each week will focus on a particular color and botanical source: indigo, madder (red), and weld (yellow). In addition, a Japanese technique of applying patterns to fabric, called shibori, will be introduced each week. Participants will learn the process of dying and apply techniques to create a surface pattern on silk each week. All supplies are included.
This program meets in person at the Arboretum.
