Member Picnic and Mushroom Dye Demo, July 10
July 10 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
If you’re into mushroom dyes, you know about Alissa Allen. If you don’t know about Alissa, come to our annual KPMS member picnic prepared to be amazed. All around us are humble mushrooms and lichens that can turn wool and silk into bright purple, green, gold, rose, even neon yellow. Alissa, a KPMS member, the founder of Mycopigments, teaches mushroom identification and dyeing. She’ll show us how, guide us through some options, and send each participant home with a fresh-dyed silk scarf.
