Tatter Blue Library
Textile Retreat

Join us for a unique, week-long retreat where we will walk into the Maine woods foraging for, and then dyeing with, a rainbow of incredible fungi. With newly-dyed thread, yarn and cloth, we then immerse in the rich history of embroidery samplers of Maine. Students will learn to name and distinguish edible, non-edible and dye-producing fungi, and will use their hand-made materials to create their own unique works of embroidered art. Maine has a unique landscape and textile history, and we are thrilled to connect to aspects of both, as inspiration for deeper textile learning.

Date: September 29 - October 5, 2019
