2019 The Art of Lichen Dyeing

Lichen Dyeing cards

Instructor:
Rachel Winters
Date: Saturday, March 23, 2019
Location: SFI, Selma, Oregon
Tuition: $60
 
Learn how to create luminescent colors from common lichens! The skills you’ll acquire from this workshop apply to fiber arts projects including knitting, weaving, felting and basketry. During this day-long course we discuss identification of a dozen different lichen species and their habitats as well as the colors they can provide for dyeing. Dye-creating tools and techniques will be shared in the classroom, then we’ll try dyeing in the Deer Creek Center kitchen. Each student will create a lichen sample and corresponding fiber sample reference collection on cards. Expect to walk about a mile total on our outdoor forays, depending on weather. A supply list will be sent with the course letter.
