JUNE 29 • Pigments from Petals: Flower Pounding with Masterson's
Make art and support the bees for National Pollinators Month!
Discover the art of using natural pigments through flower power in the courtyard at Masterson's Nursery for Flower Pounding. We'll be in the greenhouse courtyard at Masterson's next to the apiary (safely distanced: don't worry!) and use native flowers grown right in their gardens.
Students will learn how to express natural dye compounds found in the petals and stems of flowering plants and vines and imprint them onto pre-mordanted muslin for an organically "dyed" tapestry piece that will stay vibrant long after the snow comes back.
A portion of the class will go towards Masterson's, helping the work they do to promote education and do their part to save the pollinators and spread awareness. Save the Bees! See you there.
