It’s mushroom season! The rain has brought up all kinds of treasure in the forests.
You may know the kinds mushrooms you forage for food- but have you explored the wild world of fungi dyes?
During this workshop, you’ll learn about the different types of fungi found on the coast, how to identify them, and which ones are best for dyeing.
You’ll also get hands-on experience with the dyeing process, using locally sourced fungi to create beautiful and unique color on silk and wool.
Participants will dye two silk bandanas using shibori methods, as well as a small skein of wool yarn.
