Dyeing with Nature

  • Art

Did you know that you can easily grow natural dye plants in your own garden — for dyeing fabric, wool yarns, or even children’s art supplies?

In fact, chances are that you already have some plants in your garden that have dye properties. Common garden plants, such as marigold, Black-eyed Susan, madder, cosmos, and so much more all release pigment when simmered in hot water, so they can be used as dyes. 

Many of these plants are multi-purpose plants. Marigolds repel pests in the garden; elderberry attracts birds and beneficial pollinators; comfrey improves garden soil; and black walnuts, fennel, purple basil, onion, rhubarb, and blackberry are edible. So even if you have limited garden space, you can choose plants such as these that have multiple benefits and purposes.

Come learn about the exciting and versatile world of dye plants and how to bring a rainbow of garden colors into your life!
