Natural Dye Workshop (ages 10+)

October 16, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am

Three pieces of fabric dyed with plants, surrounded by bits of leaves, flowers, and onion skin
Have you ever wondered how your clothes get their color? In this two-hour workshop for ages 10-14, you will harvest dye plants, make your own natural dye, try out two different methods of dyeing, and explore the history and chemistry of fabric dyeing. Each participant will go home with a silk scarf, a cotton tote bag, and a sample of the dye they made from scratch.

Tickets can be purchased in our online store

Space is limited. Advance registration is strongly recommended.

Workshop tickets do not include Museum admission.

Please plan to arrive at MuseumLab 5 minutes before the scheduled start time of the workshop.
