Presentation: Native Dyes
February 22, 2015 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 am$12.50
Presentation: Jacqueline Soule on Native Dyes
Native plants have provided colors for paintings, craft decorations, foods, clothing and body art for thousands of years. Much of the knowledge about which plants to use, how to collect the right plant parts, how to extract and use the dyes was lost but is being rediscovered. Come and learn from one of Southern Arizona’s leading experts how to grow and use native plants and herbs for crafts and how to live in harmony with our unique Sonoran environment. A presentation about the plants will be followed by a short workshop where participants will have an opportunity to test some of the dyes and create color swatches to take home. Call 520-398-2252 to reserve a place. $12.50 fee includes a materials fee and admission to the Park.
