Event Description:

We warmly invite you to share a local experience that combines creativity, sustainability, and community. Come join us for a collaborative Natural Dye workshop, in partnership with Jamie Kraus from Living Fragments and the Columbia Shuswap Invasive Species Society (CSISS).

In this hands-on workshop, we will utilize locally found invasive plants as our source of vibrant natural dyes. Together, we’ll gather Common Tansy, St. John’s Wort, Oxeye Daisy, and Mullein, transforming them into stunning shades of yellow. By harnessing the power of these invasive species, we not only explore their potential but also contribute to their management and environmental awareness.

Prior to the workshop you will need to drop off a small item such as a t-shirt *Must be natural fibers (Including cotton, linen, bamboo, hemp, silk, wool) to be pre-treated. Your item will become a unique memento of our collective efforts.

Join us for an immersive experience that blends art, nature, and conservation. By participating in this workshop, you not only gain valuable insights into the world of natural dyes but also leave with a personally crafted reminder of our shared commitment to environmental stewardship.
