Our favorite pigments and colors are often inspired and found in naturally occurring spaces. The organic material that surrounds us is inherently responsible for the colors and fabrics we adorn ourselves in!

Play with different natural pigments made with local herbs & earth material as a way of connecting with the local landscape. Explore the history of natural pigments with an emphasis on how they were used in art making historically.

Participants will have the option of creating vibrant, personal 4” x 4” plant dyed fabric on silk/cotton or on items of a similar size they bring to class. Brooklyn Grange tote bags will also be available to dye when purchased at checkout.

All ages welcome. Part of Climate Week NYC.
