Dip-Dyeing Demo & Hands-On Project – Join us for an afternoon of natural dyeing!  You’ll learn how to make your own dye bath from plants and how to prepare fibers for at-home projects to create beautiful imprints on the ribbon. Participants are setup with a bowl of dye and watercolor paper strips for dipping or painting.

This workshop will be held outside if weather allows, otherwise, it will be held in the downstairs of the Grange Hall. Please dress accordingly. Allow 2.5-3 hours for the workshop. Participants will leave with a finished project along with detailed instructions on how to create dyes at home.

About the Instructor: Milisa Moses is a gardener and artist living on the outer Cape. She works with plants, sun, and light to create art and art-making materials: cameraless photograms using coffee and salt to develop images, pigments for painting rendered from flowers, jet-black ink made from fallen oak galls. Part alchemy, part accident, she uses these natural materials in an effort to pare down her practice to its essence.
