Experience an afternoon of mushroom hunting and dyeing in this workshop hosted by Sister Mollusk and Ben Bohemier of Taiga Mushrooms!
We will meet in the woods to begin with a mushroom identification walk (participants will be notified of the location closer to the date). Ben will introduce us to a variety of species, share his knowledge on regional mycology, and demonstrate sustainable harvesting practices.
After the walk, we’ll meet Sister Mollusk back at Goods and Co. Market to learn about natural dyes and try some dyeing with locally harvested lobster mushrooms. We will cover the fundamentals of natural dyeing, including fabric preparation, foraging and finding dye sources, and hot colour extraction.
Participants will dye their own 25″ x 25″ silk scarf/bandana to take home.
