Dye Plants | In-person class

July 16 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Many of the common colors and dyes used for our clothing are derived from plants. If you have ever wondered about this process, we will learn more about some of the plants that are used for natural dyes and discuss how to grow, harvest, process, and utilize them in your own textiles. This will be a workshop-style class, so be prepared to get your hands dirty!

Additional Information: 
This class will take place in person at the Huntsville Botanical Garden. All visitors, staff, and volunteers are asked to follow the recommendations of the CDC regarding face masks/coverings and social distancing. These recommendations may vary based on an individual’s circumstances, so individuals should refer to the CDC to determine what recommendations are applicable to them.

Members: $35
Non-Members: $60
