Join Museum educator, Kate Mortimer, for two instructive and interactive sessions on using natural dyes such as indigo and why these pigments were important to the Shakers. In this workshop, participants will work with the instructor to dye several pieces to take home. Dyeing is a messy process so please wear old clothes and shoes. Bring rubber gloves if you have them. All other materials will be provided.
Class #1 – June 1: Participants will gather dye plants, create the dyes, and prepare fabric.
Class #2 – June 8: Participants will build on their work in session 1 to create beautiful fabric pieces.
