Natural Dye Workshop August 25-26


Two day natural dye workshop, August 25 and 26th. 9:00a.m. until 5:00. On day one we will work with local plant material and the ancient dyes of cochineal, madder root and logwood. Day two will be devoted to indigo and woad and overdying yarns from the previous day. Snack and beverages provided- bring a bagged lunch. Take home two beautiful skeins of naturally dyed alpaca yarn. $145.00.
Marcia MacDonald of Long Plains Alpacas has been natural dying for 8 years and raising alpacas for over 11 years. With a background in horticulture and landscape design, the use of plant material to dye alpaca harmoniously unites all of her passions. Come have fun on the farm and start using natural dyes!

We are located in southern Maine about 20 minutes from Portland and the coast.
