Reveal the hidden hues and delightful dyes of common garden plants and cut flowers.

Join local artist Maggie Latham for a full-day botanical art workshop. Participants will learn how to prepare silk for dyeing, then try their hand at the eco-printing method. While the dye bundles are processing, participants are welcome to explore the glasshouse and outdoor gardens. Finished pieces will be unrolled onsite, and extra supplies will be available to take home to continue experimenting.

Please note that lunch is not provided with this program. Participants are encouraged to bring their own lunch or dine at the Garden Cafe.
