Explore the incredible world of natural dyes and discover how plants can create beautiful artwork with artist and dancer Amber Marie Deen. In this workshop, children will explore the wondrous alchemy and magic of plant dyes. First, they will discover how dye baths are made and how to prepare and tie fabric to create patterns. Then, they will dip their folded creations to see the dyeing process first-hand. Each child will take home their own uniquely patterned creations.
