(faux)H Urban Homesteading Workshop: Natural Dyeing
Jul 19, 2014 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm| Free
Did you know your garden is already growing a wealth of materials that you can use to beautify other things? Come learn how to take the otherwise inedible plants in your garden and dye various fibers. We will use plant materials grown specifically for dyeing as well as less commonly used dye plants. This workshop will be an exploration of the potential and uses of natural materials.
(faux)H is a series of hands-on workshops held at the Wyckoff farmhouse Museum, exploring traditional farm based skills: natural dying, alternative home economics, and preservation. Employing dye plants and crops grown on the Wyckoff farm, situated in the middle Brooklyn, (faux)H will be a collaborative experiment in the lost art of learning-by-doing. Join artist, Lisa Sikorski on a journey of learning about the slow process of making by hand and from the earth. Workshops are suitable for participants ages 13 and up.
