Wildcrafting Adventure

Tickets at $90.00

October 1, 2017 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm Hastings Room 2

This class is a moving demonstration of wildcrafting and natural dyeing from your landbase. We will discuss the ethics, health and safety, and how-to of wildcrafting in the city.
Caitlin will be using fabrics and yarns that she has prepared for dyeing prior to the class as well as dyes she wildcrafted to show you the range of colours that can be attained from city streets. She will be demonstrating with a small portable camp stove along the way as you explore the areas surrounding the PNE grounds. You will go away with a booklet with all of the information to wildcraft on your own. Be prepared to walk between 2-5km in this class. Wear comfortable shoes and appropriate clothing for the weather. Class will take place rain or shine. Check in and class start is at the Hastings Room.
