Colors of the Prairie Dye Class

We gathered plants from the Scattergood Prairie to print and dye with..and my-oh-my we had fun. And because we could, we also had an indigo vat (or three) going.


The yellow fabric was made from St. John’s Wort and the Orange is from Coreopsis. Really! The folks in the upper center photo are stirring the organic indigo vat starter.
