Date: Oct 18, 2019

Using natural dyes to add colour to the cloth and yarns that pioneer women made was an important aspect of 19th century life. If you have ever wondered what materials were used to produce such a wide range of hues, please join us for an afternoon of wool dyeing. Participants will learn about various dyeing techniques and will be able to dip a few skeins of their own.

Pre-registration required. Admission is $25. The program runs from 1 – 3pm.
