The Museum of Vancouver (MOV) is hosting an in-depth workshop will introduce participants to the magic and wonder of natural dyeing using local sources.

Workshop participants will learn the basics of foraging for dye materials as well as how to use these in practice to create beautiful colours. The workshop is a balance between traditional Coast Salish ecological knowledge and western science. Both perspectives provide students opportunities to deepen their connection with the natural world.

Each student will create a reference of dye samples to help guide further dyeing as well as their own sample skein to dye and take home.

Foraging and Dyeing with Plants and Mushrooms: Blending traditional Coast Salish knowledge with science takes place on Saturday, October 2nd or 9th from 10:00am – 4:00pm.

Tickets are $120, $110 for MOV Members, and $100 for Indigenous peoples. Spaces are limited. Masks are required.
