Natural Dyeing from the Ground Up

Learn the basics of hands-on dyeing with natural materials, some of which you will harvest from the ground during the workshop! Environmentally friendly practices
will be used to unlock the magic of historic dyestuffs that have been used
for thousands of years.

All materials provided, including silk, wool and other natural sustainable fibers that you will dye and take home, along with a detailed, printed handout for future reference.


This class is held on the grounds of the East 40, and taught by NCC adjunct professor Cindy Vojnovic - our 2022 summer Artist-in-Residence.
