Did you know your cupboard and refrigerator shelves contain a vast array of dyestuffs that can be used to naturally color your clothes? Onion skins! Purple cabbage! Black beans! Join us for this demo where we’ll cover the basics of the natural dyeing process as well as learn how to make dye baths from spices and dry goods, as well as fresh vegetables. 

Lisa Sikorski is an artist and educator who has been working with fiber for over 20 years. She started the urban homesteading project faux(h) at the farmhouse, teaching workshops on natural dyes, canning, and simple medicinals. When she is not homesteading, she can be found chasing after tiny fiber superstars at the Textile Arts Center where she manages the Brooklyn Youth Education Program.
