Natural Dyeing with Flowers and Bengala

Day 1:  Flower Eco-Dye
Fresh cut flowers and fruits from our garden provide children with wonderful stimulation. It's fun to dye with the beautiful colors and aromas. It'll be an unforgettable experience!   

Day 2:  Bengala Stencil Dye Bag
The popular Bengala dye is back for children! Bengala is a safe and sustainable dye material made from minerals found in soil. Design on a canvas tote bag using our many stencil patterns.

Day 3:  Bengala Dye on Scarf
It's fun time! Bengala is safe and not messy. Perfect for children to dye a scarf and a tea cloth, using multiple colors and learning the Japanese shibori technique.
