Through Natural Dyeing: Colors for Every Brooklyn Mood, Brooklynites will discover how to identify and use local plants that create colors. Artist Iviva Olenick will provide supplies through natural dye kits and indigo growing kits, and will also lead foraging walks in several neighborhoods, selected through participants, as well as virtual and in-person natural dyeing demonstrations and information exchanges.
