In this workshop facilitated by Emma Akmakdjian and Kaitlin Bryson, participants will be guided to research an introduced or ‘invasive’ plant species in their region then find and harvest that plant. We will come together to use these plants to naturally dye fiber and facilitate a discussion around the notions of ‘invasive’ and ‘endemic’.

Register via the link to participate in the workshop via Zoom. Upon registration, participants will receive an e-mail with instructions and materials to prepare for the workshop, which includes: 1 large pot with lid, a liter bag of dried invasive plants, wool fibers, water, and a packet of alum (mailed to participants). You must register and fill out the google form upon registration no later than April 1 in order to receive alum in the mail. Space is limited for hands-on participants. Or, register just to watch, without participating in the dyeing process hands-on!
