In this outdoor class, Susannah Taylor, owner of the natural dye textile company Earthen Warrior, will introduce you to the basics of natural dyes in a beautiful mountainside setting.

In this class, you will get to experiment with an assortment of dyes, many of them grown and harvested at Free Verse Farm as part of a new partnership with Earthen Warrior to grow natural dye plants for their ever-expanding line of sleepwear and bedding.

You'll dye over a fire pit amongst the flowers, herbs, butterflies, and bees, and learn all about which fibers you can use to dye and how to make bright, saturated colors that last. You will use flowers and dye grown on the farm, as well as exotic natural dyes, medicinal plants, and food waste.

You will leave class with your own color swatches, a silk scarf, and a cotton tote. Finish off this full-day event with a night of camping in the meadows at Free Verse Farm!
