Let's Dye with Osage Orange!

Let’s Dye with Osage Orange!
A workshop with Linda Kluge-Mansfield of Avalonblue
Sponsored by Herbs from the Labyrinth, LLC
Saturday, May 2, 2009 noon until 4 pm

Join us as Linda shares techniques for traditional dyes, a skill going back at least 6000 years. From the realms of magic and tradition, she’ll fascinate us with lore about the dyers, who were considered skilled alchemists and keepers of secret knowledge.

In the hands-on portion of the workshop, each person will dye items in dye-pots we will set up together using Osage Orange, Chamomile, Calendula & Safflower,, which will give us striking yellows. Additional scarves, silk camisoles and other goodies will be available for purchase & dyeing.

Cost for the workshop is $55, & includes two silk scarves or one silk purse. Register at Radiance, or send your check & registration information to Herbs from the Labyrinth, LLC, 9 W Grant St, Lancaster, PA 17603. Space is limited, so register early!

The workshop will be held at Radiance, 9 W Grant St, across from the Central Market in downtown Lancaster. Phone is 290-1517.

Wear clothes that can get messy, and plan to have fun!
