Wednesdays, 5:30pm – 7:00pm @ Colour Me Local Dye Garden
This summer, join us every second Wednesday in the evening under the Still Moon Arts tents for natural dyeing at the Colour Me Local Dye Garden. Drop by to learn about the roots, stems, flowers, bark, leaves and fruits that can be used to create vibrant colours. You can gain experience preparing a dye pot and using dye materials, as well as help tend the plants in the garden. All materials for these summer drop-in events will remain with Still Moon Arts and will go towards our Tapestry of Place project.
Dye garden drop-ins will take place rain or shine on the following Wednesdays from 5:30-7:00pm:
A non-medical mask or face covering is encouraged, but not mandatory. We will have hand sanitizer available on site. We encourage you to wash your hands before you arrive and after you leave. We will keep spaced apart while learning and working.
The Colour Me Local Dye Garden was planted in April 2019 as part of the Alder Eco-Arts Hub residency at Slocan Park Fieldhouse. The garden supports pollinators, natural dye programs and medicinal plant programs. It is located on the West side of the Renfrew Ravine, at Renfrew Street and East 24th Avenue (a short 4-minute walk from Renfrew Community Centre).
