Join natural dyer, gardener, and ethnobotanist Deepa Natarajan for a virtual dye demo highlighting summer flowers. Dyeing with flowers can be incredibly rewarding as these little punches of color work their magic quickly on cloth!
Plant highlights will come from Deepa and co-author Helen Krayenhoff's book "10 Plants for Color" with a handful of other seasonal surprise plants from Farm Alley Flowers. We'll cover some history of dyeing, fiber preparation, plant selection and go through the process of dyeing up cloth with summer flowers.
This will be a fun and easy introduction to the wonders of natural dyeing. Participants will be invited to submit questions. Webinar ends at 12:15 pm.

This webinar is part of a series that will be streaming live via Zoom from the Fibershed Learning Center, a multi-use space to demonstrate and provide hands-on connections to natural fiber and dye systems. The Learning Center will open later this year in Point Reyes Station, California, on the traditional and ancestral territory of the Coast Miwok and within the historic Black Mountain Ranch property.
Proceeds from each event support the class instructor and contribute to Fibershed for educational programming. A portion of the proceeds from each virtual event will also be shared with a local and mission-aligned non-profit organization, selected by the instructor. Currently scheduled online events are listed on our Learning Center page at fibershed.org/programs/education/learningcenter/
A video of the webinar will be made available to webinar registrants within approximately one week of the event.
