Description

Inspired by the artists of Marking the Infinite: Contemporary Women Artists from Aboriginal Australia to source local materials for artworks, we invited the experts from Peaceful Prairie Ranch in Prescott Valley to teach us about the local natural fiber industry. Working for 20 years raising alpacas they have been growing their knowledge of both natural fibers and natural dyes all the while. Peaceful Prairie Ranch will supply the locally-sourced plants and Arizona-grown alpaca yarn for you to get first-hand experience dyeing and learning about how to harvest your own plants for natural dye.

Materials and light refreshments provided.
