Past: Dyeing for Color: Mushrooms

Cape Girardeau Conservation Nature Center

Golds, greens, yellows, browns, and maybe an orange, peach, or red.

In celebration of "A Year in Color" Cape Nature Center is offering a monthly class focused on dyeing fiber with materials you can find and harvest nearby. Each month we’ll explore a new plant (or mushroom), how and when it can be harvested, and how it can be used to create a natural palette. This program is intended for anyone interested in dyeing with natural materials regardless of experience level; attendance every month is not required. At the end of the series you’ll have the opportunity to create something with the fiber you’ve dyed.

For June our feature "plant" isn't a plant, it's a fungus...or three; lobster, turkey tail, and reishi.

All materials will be supplied including fiber. However, if you prefer to bring your own fiber we'll dye up to100g additional animal-based fiber.

If you are participating in Cape Nature Center’s “A Year in Color” this program earns a wild bead.
