Introduction to Natural Dyeing

Come visit the Montgomery County Agricultural History Farm Park and learn about the natural dyeing process at the University of Maryland Grow It Eat It Spring Event!
In this program, participants will learn about the wide range of colors that nature can yield. Using plant-derived dyestuffs and other natural materials, you will have the opportunity to experiment with various colors and learn about the ways to prepare fabric for dyeing. A brief history of the practice of natural dyeing, the origins of dyestuffs and colors, and the science behind the process will be discussed. Each participant will take home one hand-dyed piece.
