HACKENSACK -- At 1:30 p.m Saturday, Aug. 5, Rosemary Haack will return to Deep Portage Conservation Reserve to present her workshop on preparing dyes and actually dying mini skeins of yarn.
Haack is a creative spinner, weaver, basket maker and a master with the art of natural dyes. She also will explain her own dye garden, keeping participants personally involved in the project and leading them through all the important steps. A "how to" fact sheet will be sent home with participants, as well as a sample mini skein of yarn.
Haack has asked that participants not bring personal items to dye. There is an additional materials fee of $2 for this program. Make reservations by calling 682-2325.
Deep Portage offers 20 kilometers of hiking trails. The Bass Pond trail takes about a half hour. The Hardy Hiker trail takes about 1 1/2 hours to complete. There is no participation fee for trail hikes.
