Instructor: Rachel Winters
Date: Saturday, April 14, 2018
Location: SFI, Selma, OR
Tuition: $60



Learn how to create luminescent colors from common lichens! The skills you’ll acquire from this workshop apply to fiber arts projects including knitting, weaving, felting and basketry. During this course, we’ll cover identification of a dozen different lichen species in outdoor locations as well as the colors they provide. Dye-creating tools and techniques will be shared in the classroom. Each student will make a card collection with a lichen sample and a colored fiber sample provided by the instructor showing the results, for reference. Expect to walk about a mile, depending on the weather.

Complete your lichen mastery by enrolling in the “Intro to Lichens” workshop the weekend before.
