July 9: Eucalyptus Magic - the Gold Edition

Saturday, July 9 - 1-4 pm

Cost: $50 per participant for RiverArts members (non-member price is $60)

  • Material fee: $25 for a silk scarf; instructor will collect material fee at class.

Adults and teens welcome!

Join us to naturally dye a one-of-a-kind scarf. We’ll use fresh eucalyptus leaves to create a unique pattern on a silk scarf. Through the magic of Eco-dyeing the leaves impart their color to the cloth. And because we will be “cooking” our scarves in marigold dye they will be lovely shades of gold and orange and maybe some green. You’ll learn about the history of Eco-dyeing, good dye technique and how to care for your scarf. While the scarves are dyeing, we’ll explore the magic of indigo and dye a cotton bandana blue. You may have little free time to explore the shops downtown before we remove the scarves from the bath and have the “big reveal."
