Plant-based dyes offer a unique way to cultivate earth-friendly colors in harmony with the seasons. In this class we will walk through the basics of garden planning and growing dye plants, including how to grow, harvest, store and use dye materials. Participants will start a number of dye seeds of their choice and select some pre-started seedlings grown by natural dye grower Maddy Bartsch to take home with them. After this class, you’ll be ready to dive deeper into both gardening and plant-based dyeing this growing season!

Students are asked to bring the following materials:

  • A small box, bag, or basket to bring your seedlings home in
  • Note taking materials
