Our 2 day class Colors of the Prairie at Scattergood Friends School, a Quaker boarding school in West Branch, Iowa on June 27 and 28 is coming up! Scattergood is about 3.5 hours outside of Chicago, 1.5 hours from Des Moines and 15 minutes from Iowa City.
Using low water and sustainable methods, we will be roaming Scattergood’s restored prairie and farm in search of interesting dye materials to create pieces that evoke a time and place. An organic indigo vat will add layers and complexity to our pieces. Lodging and meals are available for a song – $50 in addition to your $245 base registration fee gets you 2 nights in a dorm room and breakfast, lunch and Saturday night dinner. The food is fresh and local from Scattergood’s on-site organic farm. Bring a swimsuit for a refreshing dip in the pond! Register here.
