Join us to naturally dye a one-of-a-kind scarf. We’ll use local 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. In the morning session, you’ll put your scarf together, place it in the dye bath, and learn about the process. We’ll also make string bracelets from naturally dyed cotton with a naturally dyed bead as we wait for the water to boil. While the scarves are dyeing, you’ll have free time from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm to have lunch, relax, and visit the downtown shops. At 1:00 pm, we’ll remove the scarves from the bath and have the “big reveal.”
