Welcome to the VCHSG Natural Dye Study Group

Welcome to our guild sponsored study group to promote the understanding and usage of our natural environment! We are working on a ton of projects and events that will help us learn more about how to work within our local resources.

To participate in our natural dye study group, you must be a current member of VCHSG. If you are not an active member of the Ventura County Handweavers and Spinners Guild, please visit our Membership page.

What is Natural Dye?!

Natural dyes are dyes or colorants derived from plants, invertebrates, or minerals. The majority of natural dyes are vegetable dyes from plant sources—roots, berries, bark, leaves, and wood—and other biological sources such as fungi.

Sounds Cool, Are There Meetings?

Why yes, thank you for asking! We do have regularly scheduled VCHSG Natural Dye Study Group Meetings! We meet on the 1st Wednesday of each month at 7:00pm. Please contact Natural Dyeing for information on how to join our Zoom meetings!
