Dyes are substances that impart color to other materials such as fibers (including fabric, paper, yarn, and baskets). In this 6-day intensive, we learn to identify plants that yield dyes, practice the art of dyeing with plants, gain appreciation of and care for plants in the Indigenous Arts Campus gardens, engage in color journaling, and explore color in various cultural contexts. This class supports students with interests in art, botany, ethnobotany, horticulture, cultural and Indigenous studies, and education.

Students may also expand upon this class through more personalized and/or in-depth work in an Independent Learning Contract (ILC) or Internship (INT), speak to the faculty for more information.

This offering will prepare you for careers and advanced study in:
