Dyes are substances that impart color to other materials such as fibers (including fabric, paper, yarn, and baskets). In this one-week early summer intensive we learn to identify plants that yield dyes during the early part of summer, practice the art of dyeing with plants, gain appreciation of and care for plants in the Longhouse Gardens, engage in nature journaling, and explore color in various cultural contexts, including among the Coast Salish. This Intensive can be complemented by any of the other summer intensives, including Color Grows in the Garden II: Late Summer Intensive.

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

art, botany, ethnobotany, horticulture, cultural and Indigenous studies, and education
