Reveal the colorful surprises that both local and exotic plants can give textiles, from brilliant blues and rich purples to useful browns and sunny oranges. Historic interpreter Deborah Peterson will lead participants through all stages of 18th century dyeing.
Learn which plants give wools and linens some unexpected colors. Discover what other unusual ingredients give fabric your favorite hues. At the end of the day, all participants will get to dye their own pair of colonial style stockings to take home.
This program welcomes participants aged 10 & up. Registration and payment are due by Sept. 8. All participants are asked to bring a bagged lunch.
