You might enjoy harvesting and eating mushrooms, but did you know they also contain dyes? We can use these dyes to color fabrics and yarns! This presentation will give an overview of natural dyeing with mushrooms (and maybe a few lichens!). We will discuss various mushrooms that we can use in dyeing and different processes for extracting the dyes. Mushroom dyed samples will be displayed. This is a basic beginner introduction to mushroom dyeing, a peek into this colorful world.
