Staff Picks: Natural Dyeing with Local Plants
Well we circled, and circled, and circled (was it Carroll + Nevins? Carroll + Smith? President street? Or Union?) and only one hour later the promised tree! The ladies braved gawkers and hecklers, while I giggled in the getaway car snapping pictures.
Opportunities for natural dye foraging like these are everywhere, and even if you have only the littlest bit of land, you can grow your own, or shop sustainably through someone who does. Learn some of the what is in season, when and where to find it, how to extract and why its so important with the Dogwood Dyer Liz Spencer in the upcoming morning series Natural Dyeing with Local Plants (Register Here) May 19th and 21st.
And! If you find yourself foraging in NYC, don’t forget to grab a limited edition map of Central Park Trees so you don’t lose your bearings- printed with natural dye of course.
