Green Matters Natural Dye Co. – Open House Dye Day

February 4 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Event Navigation

Join Winona in a day of creative production to explore natural dye techniques or simply spend time with other makers.

There will be several indigo vats, a steam kettle for bundle dyeing, dyes for use, a mordant bath and maybe some solid dye pots. This is a great opportunity to finish a project, mordant garments or fiber for dyeing at home, or to dye your entire wardrobe blue.  Don’t feel like dyeing but want to work on something else?  You can access a free admission ticket to come sit, knit, sew, carve, or work on whatever you want in the company of other makers.  There will be a lot of non-dye related crafting materials.

This event is in honor of Winona’s late Grandmother MaryAnn, on what would have been her 80th birthday.  MaryAnn grew up without nurturing adults around, yet became a warm and nurturing person.  When asked how she learned how to take care of others when no one had modeled that for her, she would say that she learned to self-nurture through craft.  There are two ticket types: paid tickets for access to dye materials and the wet-space, or unpaid tickets for those who want to bring a non-dye project to work on.
