Program Description

Community gardens are a staple of NYC, but did you know that many hold the possibility to change not only a neighborhood, but the color of what you wear? Join fiber artist and textile expert Isa Rodrigues for this afternoon-long, hands-on workshop that explores the possibilities of creating natural dyes from local plants. Students will learn the basics of dyeing with natural dyes, including how to extract color from plant materials and how to affix those colors to fiber, working exclusively with plants from the NYC bounty as sources of color.
