Natural dyes can be made from a variety of wild and cultivated plants. Textile artist Tracy McLellan will show slides of plants that can be used for dyeing fibers and fabrics. The discussion will include native plants and some that can be grown in our gardens, as well as common foods that can be used for dyes.
