Explore your creativity and nature with artist Jaleeca Yancy, studio resident of Ma’s House. Get your hands dirty with natural dyeing! Learn about the medium by turning your fabrics and clothing into beautiful works of art. Take part in making a textile using foraged plants from the Shinnecock Indian Reservation in South Hampton. The workshop will cover the basics of natural dying and resist dye techniques.

All ages are welcome and no experience is necessary.
