A Lunch and Learn event of Ice Dyed Silk Scarves will take place on Tuesday, February 12, at the Castleton Community Center. Ice Dying is a unique dye process where the fabric is covered in ice cubes and dye is applied to the ice. As the melting ice turns to liquid, dye is dispersed in organic swirls, making each piece a unique and beautiful piece of art. The workshop will start at 11 a.m. with an introduction, then a how-to followed by the dying process. Lunch will be served at 12 noon while the colorful scarves hang to dry. Participants will be able to take the scarves home with them after lunch. There is a registration fee of $6, which covers the cost of the workshop and lunch, and is due by February 8. For information, call 802-468-3093.
