Discovering Color – Exploring Mushroom and Lichen Dyeing with Alissa Allen

Join me October 6th and 7th for a two-day mushroom and lichen dye intensive in Seattle, WA. We will meet Saturday morning at Discovery Park for a walk through the woods where we’ll observe mushrooms and lichens in their natural habitats and talk about fungal ecology, ethical harvest, and collecting. After a lunch break, we’ll reconvene at a beautiful private studio in Ballard to go through the steps of testing mushrooms and lichens for dye potential. Sunday, using tried and true recipes and a selection of the most prized local wild dye species, we will extract a full spectrum of color.

After our weekend, you will have the tools you need to get started, recipes and samples to guide you through future exploration, and an elegant mushroom dyed silk scarf.

Register early, this class will fill up.
