Learn how to grow and use natural dye plants to color your own fabrics. Local authors Deepa Natarajan and Helen Krayenhoff will give a talk and demonstration on how to raise dye plants and prepare beautiful dyes with recipes from their new book,10 Plants for Color. Full of information for natural dyeing and gardening, this book describes each plant with cultural and historic information, how to start plants from seed, and much more — complemented by Helen’s beautiful illustrations. There are dye recipes for each plant and helpful hints gained from years of collective gardening and dyeing experience, making this is a great resource for the gardener who has never tried dyeing and the dyer who has never tried gardening and all those in between. Copies of the book will be available for sale and signing.
