Workshop for Adults: Exploring Natural Dyes with Porfirio Gutiérrez

An Introduction to Cochineal Insects

In this daylong workshop for adults, Porfirio Gutiérrez will discuss the history and uses of cochineal from the perspective of the Zapotecs who originally cultivated this prized colorant. Participants will learn to naturally dye a scarf and take it home the same day.
