Dye Garden Explorers Summer Camp • Monday, August 26 – Friday, August 30, 9 am – 3 pm

Monday, August 26 – Friday, August 30, 9 am – 3 pm

Come play in our Dye Garden! Learn about the ecologically friendly process of dyeing with plant-based materials. Explore techniques to create patterns and surface design on paper, fabric, and garments using natural dyestuffs. Harvest pigment-rich flowers and soil from Textile Center’s “Garden to Dye For” (and even veggie scraps from our kitchen!) to use as natural dyeing materials. Forage for leaves and other interesting forms found in nature to use in printing and resist-dye techniques. This weeklong exploration of natural pigments, dyeing, and creative ways to use plant materials in textiles will introduce students to the many possibilities of creating color on fiber in ways that are both healthy for ourselves and for our planet.

Recommended for kids ages 7-12 yrs.
