We offer workshops and outings for all ages throughout the year, both virtually and in person. Sign up for one of our upcoming events below, and check back periodically for updates.

Intro to Natural Dyeing

Rescheduled to Spring 2022

Dive into the joys of creating natural, beautiful color from resources right here in the Hudson Valley. In this class we’ll explore the many ways to prepare protein fibers for the natural dye bath and the countless colors you can coax from flowers, plants, food waste and more! Participants will be dyeing a skein of SKF Tunis wool in a natural dye bath.

Jenny O’Toole is a native of the Hudson Valley and has long been inspired by the beauty that surrounds her. She started natural dyeing in 2018 with marigolds from her garden and the joy she’s found in that has grown into a small business- Forage & Sow Dye Works. As an avid gardener and knitter, and mother of two, Jenny aims to share the importance of the slow wool movement and how we can all do our part and contribute less waste.
