Earth Wand for Children
For children all ages
Alie Rich of Wild Roots Studio offers soulful nature-based workshops for children to strengthen their connection to nature and wildly explore their creativity. There is something magical in combining nature and art. It returns us to a simplicity, wonder and soulful place where we find deep connection & peace. Nature based crafts are a great way to enjoy the outdoors with kids, promote sustainability, and encourage little ones to discover the enchantment of Mother Nature. From this comes an understanding of how special our environment is and how important it is to take care of it.
Weaving with Plant Dyed Yarn
Middle Girls Age 9-13
We will explore basic weaving concepts, the use of plants to create dye, and how our choices of fabric and clothing impact our world. Finger Weaving, a North American Weaving Tradition, has been used for 1000 years by native people to create braided belts, sashes and bags. Middle Girls will each Finger Weave a bracelet using plant dyed yarn.
Solar Dyeing with Plants
for girls 9 and under
We will begin with a discussion of plants used for dyeing wool, followed by a plant walk to see what is growing around us. We will put together jars containing dye plants, wool and water to create Solar Dyed fiber.
The following day we will remove the wool from the solar dye jars to see the color that was produced. Children will receive samples of their plant dyed wool.

Kids Herb Class
We will be going on a fun adventure exploring all the wonderful plant friends around us. Let's remember how speak to the trees and plants and listen as they talk back to us! Together we will collect greens for a wild salad and learn the plants that we can eat, all the while keeping our eyes and ears open for fairy sightings. Come let's play.
Fairy Tea Party
