Using Mushrooms as Natural Dyes WorkshopCampus Calendar

Saturday, June 30, 2012
10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Location: Adirondack Interpretive Center, Newcomb, NY

Event Description: Susan Hopkins presents an intimate workshop on dyeing with mushrooms. Using four or five different species of mushrooms, participants will learn to identify the mushrooms and the dyeing process and dye samples of wool to take home. Although mushroom identification is not a simple task, there are three major groups of wild mushrooms (plus several oddball varieties) that can be recognized for their use as natural dyers. Knowing where and when to look for the best mushrooms helps narrow the field for the beginner as well as the experienced hunter. $30.00/person. Only 8 spots available. Please register by June 25!
