Have a wonderful Mother/Daughter day exploring the world of natural dyes! We will be using avocado pits to dye a large cotton gauze scarf a soft pink. Learn about mordants, preparing the dye, how to care for your naturally dyed scarf, and play with learning to hammer pops of color into the scarf using leaves and flowers! While your scarves are dyeing you will get to enjoy a lovely catered lunch.
Children over the age of 8 are welcome to participate. All skill levels are welcome. A materials fee of $8 per person is included in the tuition.
