  • Plant Dyes for Keiki

    In this single-day workshop, students will learn about dye plants found in Hawai‘i. The class will emphasize the use of locally harvested plants, and their use in making dyes. They will learn about collecting plant material and the process by which they are turned into dye. Students will work with the plant dyes, creating their own unique works of art. All supplies will be provided.
    Avalon Paradea's picture
    Avalon Paradea was raised in Waikōloa and has been passionately making art since childhood. Always fascinated in human culture and our relationships to the world around us, she immersed herself in the realms of anthropology and ethnobotany as a college student at UHMānoa. Since graduating in 2014, her knowledge of Hawaiʻi's many plant species and their functionality in the arts has expanded through working as a conservationist and archaeologist, as well as through mentorship in making kapa and plant dyes.
