Come join 701 CCA Artist in Residence, Kristy Bishop, and explore the exciting world of natural dyes. All around us, there are plants that may seem ordinary, but with some knowledge they can yield the richest and most beautiful colors. Whether it is onion skins or annatto seeds from the local grocer, goldenrod picked from a roadside, or a more exotic dye such as indigo and cochineal that have been cultivated and traded worldwide, workshop participants will learn how to extract color that is lightfast, permanent, and brilliant.

During this workshop, attendees will be able to experiment on multiple types of fiber before dyeing a final silk scarf and any additional fabric that they have brought. Types of fabric that are suggested for dyeing are cotton, silk, linen, wool yarn, or any natural fiber.
