We’ve already had an excellent workshop on medicinal herbs and a great Gardener’s Mic on beneficial weeds (more on those in a future post).
Next up is a crochet workshop on Saturday, September 27 from 11:30am – 1pm, led by PHCF member Traci Nottingham. Traci is a spinner, fiber farmer, and crocheter that has been exploring the fiber arts for over 20 years. This class is ideal for those who have always wanted to learn crochet or simply pick up a new hobby. Free! No registration required.
Then Saturday, October 11 from 11:00am – 3pm, there will be an Indigo and Woad workshop with Liz Spencer aka the Dogwood Dyer. Learn about the precious few plants in nature that yield a blue pigment. We’ll be working with three different processes including the ‘organic sugar’ vat that requires no chemicals, and fresh leaf dyeing with woad grown in the garden! This is no ordinary natural dye workshop so sign up ASAP! Register at phcfdye.brownpapertickets.com
