Sunday, August 12th 1:00pm to 5:00pm
Come visit the flower farm and spend an afternoon dyeing with plants and making a floral arrangement.
Jane Jacobs is a textile artist living and creating in Newmarket. Her practice focuses on creating one-of-a-kind textiles with silk, wool, and handmade felt. Using plant matter, minerals, metals and food waste, her various dye techniques give each garment a unique story.
Cathy Bartolic operates a flower farm in Stouffville. She has a keen sense of how plants and flowers can mingle to produce stunning bouquets and arrangements.
Each participant will make a silk scarf and floral arrangement to take home with them. You are also encouraged to bring another piece of cotton or silk clothing that you can dye during the afternoon.
