Lichen Dye Workshop
Workshop | January 21 | 10 a.m.-3 p.m. | UC Botanical Garden
This class and workshop will provide an overview and history of lichen dyes followed by information on the methodologies of creating lichen dye baths. We will heat up some dyes and add fiber samples (provided). While the dye lichens are doing their work, Shelly will lead class participants on a walk in the surrounding area to look for lichens in the Garden. We will learn some common lichen species and the characteristics that help identify those good for dyeing. After the walk well see what colors have developed in the dye pots!
