Event details

Take inspiration from the “Golden Opportunity: Botanical Illustration” traveling exhibit to make your own masterpiece with natural dyes. Learn about the different methods used to create the dyes and then use the results of our experimentation to create a work of art. Choose between various colors and mediums to bring the dye to life. Depending on the medium of choice, you will be welcome to leave your project to dry and return the next day to pick it up.
