It’s $10 for members, $12 for the public and $8 for students.

Anyone who’s interested in textiles might want to check out this Natural Fabric Dyeing Workshop on Thursday February 4th at 6:30 pm. This workshop is taught by Susan Fohr, a museum educator who learned the craft of natural dyeing while working at Black Creek Pioneer Village. The workshop is a little pricey at $65 but all materials are included.
