Flower Pounding

Saturday, August 12, 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Welcome central Iowa native, herb grower, and botanical dye expert Maggie Howe to Reiman Gardens! Maggie’s deep experience and expertise with dyeing and fibers and her wild creativity result in projects that are simply very special. For this program, Maggie will lead you in a great instant-gratification project: dyeing fabric using botanicals gathered from the Gardens. Start by embarking on a mission to collect plant parts that inspire you. Then devise a unique pattern, and follow her simple instructions to get one-of-a-kind creations. Each student will take home a canvas tote and a cotton handkerchief/scarf. All materials included. Preregistration with prepayment is required by Wednesday, August 9.
