Instructor: Shari Apotheker

In this two-day class, students will learn the basic techniques of natural dyeing to gain the confidence to play with the colors available in our own backyards. We will review the amazingly wide range of colors that can be obtained from wild plants easily found in the Northeast Kingdom, and will dye a tote bag with local plants, with the option of altering colors with simple pH modifications.

Class fee: $80 (10% discount for Catamount Arts members and high school students)

Parents of students under 18 will need to complete an Enrollment Form after paying for the class.

Registration deadline: August 15
