dye plants by Maddy Bartsch

This class is offered by the American Swedish Institute, led by Maddy Bartsch, a co-founder of the Three Rivers Fibershed Affiliate.

Are you interested in learning about growing dye plants for naturally dyeing yarn, fabric and other textiles at home? In this class we will walk through the basics of growing dye plants in your own home garden, including how to grow, harvest, store and use dye materials. In particular, instructor Maddy Bartsch will emphasize regenerative growing practices that keep your garden happy! This one-hour class is lecture style and will run over Zoom, and offer lots of tips as well as time for registrant questions. You’ll be ready to dive deeper into both gardening and natural dyeing this growing season!

This virtual class requires a computer or tablet with a good internet connection. Log in instructions will be shared via email in advance.
