Foraging & Natural Dye Workshop
Join us for a day of natural dyeing on Malibu Orchards!
Over the course of our day we will identify and forage local dye plants, dye fabric with plants from the area and experiment with shibori, a traditional Japanese art of resist-dyeing.
Come fine tune your knowledge or naturally dye with us for the first time! We invite you to get away from the city and explore the world of natural dyes in a serene environment.
