Golds, greens, yellows, browns, and maybe an orange, peach, or red. In celebration of “A Year in Color” Cape Nature Center is offering a monthly class focused on dyeing fiber with materials you can find and harvest nearby. Each month we’ll explore a new plant (or mushroom), how and when it can be harvested, and how it can be used to create a natural palette. This program is intended for anyone interested in dyeing with natural materials regardless of experience level; attendance every month is not required. At the end of the series you’ll have the opportunity to create something with the fiber you’ve dyed.

For February our feature plant is the humble, and usually discarded, walnut husk. All materials will be supplied including fiber. However, if you prefer to bring your own fiber we’ll dye up to 100g additional animal-based fiber. If you are participating in Cape Nature Center’s “A Year in Color” this program earns a green plant bead.
