Each participant will need to select a garment to transform into their talismanic outfit. The garment can be anything as long as it is comprised entirely of natural fibers (i.e. : cotton, hemp, linen, flax, silk, wool, rayon, etc). We will share a few of our favorite shops for finding vintage & used garments perfect for natural dye. We ask that you send your selected garment to Suntrap Farm as soon as possible so that we can begin the process of preparing the garment (washing, scouring, mordanting) so that by the time August 16th rolls around, it will be ready to yield a rich botanical hue.
