What you'll learn in this dye class:

Warm up this holiday season with some madder magic, and share the gift of natural pigment with your loved ones! 

Madder root is the gift that keeps giving. This natural pigment is found in the red roots of the madder plant. We will partner with nature to share madder magic with friends and family this holiday season. We will extract orange, red, and pink tone’s from madder root – nature’s red root – in order to create prints on silk scarves and woolen items for the holidays. 

Everyone will walk away with a gift for themselves & a loved one, along with the natural dyeing knowledge needed to explore the array of pigments nature has to offer.

Wear clothes you do not mind getting blue!
