Applying natural dyes are so fun!  Take a look pictures.  Leaves and branches of Apricot tree from our yard created lovely yellow on silk.  It is buttery and honey like yellow.  While simmering, the smell was sweet.  We experienced coffee, onion skins, tea, and logwood in the class of Origami Shibori with natural dyes at Evanston Art Center(847-475-5300).  Works are by Sara, Donna, and Dixie.  New class will start Oct. 22 (TH).  Hope you can join.  The class is Nui Shibori with natural dyes.
