Did you ever wonder what people from all the cultures of the world used to make beautiful, colorful garments? Dyeing fibers is a practice that goes back thousands of years. Some colors produced from rare plants were so vibrant that they were reserved for royalty, while others were used for artistic expression. Foraging for “plants that dye” in all seasons can produce a vibrant spectrum of colors for botanical and animal fibers. Join Beatrice Brown in an exploration of many natural sources that can be used in textile dyeing for personal and home use.
