Alissa Allen is coming to town and she has agreed to present a three hour silk scarf shibori workshop. You will learn the simple steps for extracting and harnessing the pigments found in a few common, easy to recognize wild mushrooms and lichens.
September 24-27 at the historic Blue Ridge Assembly in Black Mountain.
AKA the golden chanterelle
The time is upon us for the coming of the golden chanterelle, perhaps the most prized of the edible wild mushrooms. Search the moist forests for the egg yolk yellow caps growing on the forest floor (not on wood). The cap has a wavy inrolled margin with a depressed center.
Recipe by Charlotte Caplan.
