Farmhouse Family Day: Natural Dyes

September 17 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Free
Join us in using plants from our garden to dye and color fabrics!

Let’s go back to a time when people naturally colored fabrics using flowers, vegetables, and fruits. Stop by and create some of your own personal designs using all natural dyes in Fall colors with textile artist Iviva Olenick. Family Day is from 11AM to 3PM, with the natural dyes activity beginning at 1PM.

What to expect on your visit:

  • Farmhouse Family Day is free and open to all ages, ideal for children ages 4-10.
  • The natural dyeing activity will begin at 1PM.
  • Farm activities (i.e. harvesting, weeding) beginning at 12PM. Make sure to wear close-toed shoes and prepare to get dirty.

Other things to do while you are here:

  • Drop off food scraps for compost.
  • We recommend using the restroom before your arrival. There is one port-o-san on the property.
