Dyeing with Native Plants Workshop, October 28

Contact(s): Leona Rodreick, Jesse Salix

Join the U.S. Forest Service and the Calypso Chapter of the Native Plant Society in a fun workshop using native plants to extract natural dyes.  Participants will learn how to use some of our local flora to extract dyes for coloring silk and wool materials. 

Participants are encouraged to bring: any plant dyes they may have extracted and are ready to use; dye pots; utensils if they have them; and a hot plate if available.  Participants may also bring a small item of silk or wool to dye, however items will be available to purchase at the event.

The event is scheduled for Sunday, October 28 starting at 10 a.m. and ending around 3 p.m. at the Beaverhead County 4-H Building at the Fairgrounds in Dillon. Bring a sack lunch and beverage.

The event is free and open to the public, however, reservations are required as space is limited.  To register contact Jessie Salix at (406) 683-3947.
