The mushroom dye class put on by the Puget Sound Mycological Society was lots of fun. Our teacher was Alissa Allen and you can see her website here: Mycopigments.com We tore up a bunch of mushrooms and put them in a pot. Alissa told us about checking the ph to bring out the colors.
There was a display of mushroom and lichen dyed fibers and garments.
We each dyed 2 silk scarfs. This all took us only 2 hours and I was happy to leave prepared to go out on my own and try dyeing with mushrooms. I very much appreciated the handout Alissa gave us that will help my identify the most common mushrooms for dyeing. I'm going to try to get out this weekend for a hike and see if I can find some.
