Saturday, July 1, 10 AM - 2 PM
Gather on the land to experience the abundance in the Summer Dye Gardens. We'll meet the dye plants and get right into to playing with the color our local plants produce. Through the processes of EcoPrinting and Bundle Dyeing, you will learn how to create crisp leaf and flower prints as well as abstract, vibrant, and colorful works of art to bring home with you. It is the magical alchemy of plants, water, heat, and pressure!
While our creations steam over the fire, we can enjoy our freshly picked herbal tea, seasonal snacks, and journey into the woods.
What should you bring?
- Clothes that can get messy &/or an apron
- Closed-toe shoes if you want to walk in the woods
- I will have herbal tea and light snacks (gluten and dairy free), but you are welcome to bring a snack/lunch if you prefer. Clean, cold well water is available.
- Sun hat & sunscreen (though shade will be available)
No experience necessary, just the desire to learn and have fun.
Cost - How do I choose?
Tier 1 is for members of the community who currently need more financial support as taking this class would be a hardship.
Tier 2 is for those who have little expendable income but taking this class would not create hardship.
Tier 3 is the actual cost of the course.
Tier 4 is the Pay-It-Forward tier. It is the cost of the course plus a bit extra that goes to supporting the low cost classes of your fellow community members.
Our land is in Leicester, NC ~10 miles NW of downtown Asheville.
