Create a unique scarf using Staghorn Sumac leaves. Staghorn Sumac is a nonpoisonous native plant that can grow invasively along highways and yards. But is also makes wonderful nuanced images when eco-dyed. In the morning session you'll put your scarf together, place them in an iron water dye bath and we'll talk about the process. While the scarves are dyeing you'll have free time from 11 to 2:00 to have lunch, visit the local shops or whatever you choose. If you come back early you can learn to make a string bracelet with a naturally dyed bead. At 2:00 p.m. we'll remove the scarves from the bath and have the" big reveal"
