About this event

Join Venancio Aragon in this two-day workshop to explore the techniques of extracting color from plants to dye wool. A focus will be made on local ecology and sustainable methods of harvesting and dyeing with plants. Students will learn the importance of color extraction to the Navajo People and the place textiles have within the cultural history of the Southwest. Special attention will be given to alternative dyeing methods that aim to reduce one’s carbon footprint and conserve water. No previous experience is required.
