Homegrown Dye Garden Project
Join our Homegrown Dye Garden Project and be part of a community growing natural dyestuffs. Your involvement can be as big or small as you would like – a full dye garden or a pot on your porch. We’ll support you throughout the growing season with information including plant suggestions, growing tips, how to preserve your natural dye materials, suitable fiber/fabric to dye naturally, how to prepare fiber/fabric for dyeing, and much more. We’ll also keep you informed about relevant classes and workshops, other forms of natural dyeing, and recommend natural dyeing books, videos, and blogs. There will be opportunities for virtual discussions and gatherings and even in-person foraging walks to gather dye materials where they grow naturally. Then, the project will culminate this fall in a hands-on “Day to Dye For” at the SEFAA Center where we can share our homegrown, natural-dye materials, create communal dye-pots, and dye together.
It’s free to participate, so sign up today and get involved in our growing community! We may be individually tending our plants, but we’ll be communally sharing knowledge and plant materials, and that means color and fun for all!
PS Please share this information with your friends so that they can grow with us, too.
