May 24th – 26th – 10am to 4 pm near Portland OR -Mushroom and Lichen Dye Immersion with the Aurora Colony Handspinners Guild

Join the ACHG Memorial day weekend for a 3 day immersion course in Mushroom and Lichen dyeing. We will take to the woods to observe mushrooms and lichens in their natural habitats. Learn the principles of ethical harvest and the basics of mushroom and lichen morphology and ecology. Day two we will work with multiple species of dye fungi to obtain a full spectrum of color. Day 3 bring your own fibers to dye. You’ll be amazed at how different protein fibers take the dyes. This experience will help guide your future experiments with fungal dyes. To register, join the ACHG
