We will make a few dye pots to dye wool with local plants and flowers and then use it to create colorful tassel or pompom keychains.

You will go home with:
A bundle-dyed silk scarf
A naturally dyed tassel or pompom keychain
Skills and knowledge on natural dyeing 

Tickets: $80 available at https://birchboxprojects.org/workshops/bundle-dyeing 

This year, we are donating the majority profits of this to IRCOM (Immigrant Refugee Community Organization of Manitoba) to enable them to bring music into their childcare program.
