We had a lot of fun tie-dyeing t-shirts at the Sarah Ross House 1-year anniversary BBQ on Tuesday! Residents and neighbours came by our table to dye their own shirts using tansy. We got different shades of yellow and green on the shirts by dipping them in an iron alum and baking soda solution. If you are interested in learning more about natural dyes, stay on the lookout for more workshops with our Colour Me Local program. And watch for Moon Fest 2019 posters going up around the community in the next few weeks!

Special thanks to the Sarah Ross House staff for putting on such a fun community event!

Look at these gorgeous colours we got on silk from the dye garden and Renfrew Ravine! From the top: Randy with iron, fresh indigo, marigold, oregon grape berries, and those same berries with iron.

This gauze-like cotton was dyed with goldenrod from the garden and a mixture of blackberries and Oregon grapes picked in Renfrew Ravine. We’re so pleased to feature it in “Cracks in Creeks: Live Streaming” our summer youth performance program!
This youth-created performance piece will be debuted on Aug 11th as part of @vinesfestival, 5-6:30pm in Renfrew Park.
If you’re out of town in August, don’t worry! We’ll be performing the piece again on Sept 22 at the CNH Annex, and filming a documentary with youth videographer Jamarr Hepburn.

We had some new and returning faces at our dye garden work party on Wednesday! It was a hot evening in the sun but volunteers were enthusiastic in weeding, and got to harvest some oregon grape and blackberry by the cool shade of the ravine. Our next work party will be happening on August 14th from 6-8pm – be sure to come out to help support our plant dye programs! .
