This month we explore sumac (Rhus species). Sumac grows alongside the road or in disturbed areas. Distinguish it from walnut or tree of heaven by it's toothed edges. Please bring equal weight of leaves to the weight of fiber you want to dye. Sumac produces yellow, olive green or purple-grey depending on the mordant and modifier so bring mordanted and unmordanted fibers 

If you haven't joined the us for the study group we pick one topic each month which is led by one of the natural dyer's in our group. This is not a class and does assume a basic familiarity with natural dyeing. We do recommend that you have taken a class or done some research so you can  have a  satisfactory experience.

What to Bring: 

Plant material and fiber to dye, mordanted and un-mordanted, show and tell to share, something to work on.
