Join us for a personal, one-on-one, reflective indigo dip at the Lynden Sculpture Garden with artist-in-residence Kim Khaira. During your 45-minute session, Khaira will share her knowledge of natural dyeing with plant materials harvested at Lynden, and will provide a hands-on experience with indigo dyeing. With tools and materials provided to create an indigo vat, together we will develop our skill in creating specific hues with indigo. We will produce three variations of blue, and each participant will also receive a piece of cloth to create a blue of your choice. Newcomers to natural and indigo dyeing welcome, as well as long-time indigo practitioners.

Dress for dyeing. Bring writing materials and water; masks are required.

About the Artist
As a beginning of a lifelong journey with natural dyeing, Lynden’s artist-in-residence Kim Khaira would like to share and provide practice sessions with artists and community members interested in co-learning and mutual reflections of indigo dyeing. In the second year of her residency, and building on exchanges and encounters with artists at Lynden and beyond--and especially Arianne King Comer’s batik and indigo practices--Khaira is exploring personal art practices that translate to cultural and familial ways of living. Her focus has been on natural dyeing as a way of living and a connecting point between peoples, cultures, and nature.

Art + Nature Lab will meet outdoors at Lynden when weather permits, and on Zoom when it doesn’t (we will send out an alert each week, 24 hours in advance).

Join Lynden's Robert Kaleta on a walk around the grounds to learn about Wisconsin's own edible tree nuts and how to identify, harvest, and process some of nature's delicious fall offerings. You will learn all you need to know to begin or continue your foraging endeavors, as well as the tools and techniques required to keep you busy processing your harvested nuts all winter long.

Masks and social distancing required. This walk takes place outdoors and will proceed if it is raining, unless there is lightning, in which case the walk will be rescheduled.

We ask that you remain home if you:
• Have symptoms of COVID-19 (fever or flu-like symptoms, cough, shortness of breath, chills, diarrhea, fatigue, headache, muscle aches, nausea, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, or vomiting) or have taken medications to reduce these symptoms.
• Have been in contact, or you believe they have been in contact, with someone with COVID-19 in the 14 days prior to a workshop.
Full refunds will be made for those who cancel for health reasons and those unable to attend a rescheduled workshop.

About Robert Kaleta

Robert just finished his first year working at the Lynden Sculpture Garden. He has spent about eight years in the field of ecological restoration, and almost a lifetime enjoying what nature has to offer. Somewhere along the way he was introduced to wild edible plants, and the learning has continued ever since. He enjoys all kinds of foraging activities, particularly harvesting wild rice, nuts, berries, and mushrooms. Robert gained his knowledge of edible plants from mentors, workshops, books, and friends and he enjoys sharing this knowledge and excitement with others.

Join poet and birder Chuck Stebelton the second Sunday of each month for a small-group, socially distanced bird walk on the grounds.

Please dress for the weather and plan to walk in varied terrain. Bring your binoculars if you have them; no previous birding experience required.

Lynden-ClaudiaOrjuela-HOMEStorytime

FREE
This is a virtual event.

Join us for a virtual, bilingual HOME Story Time from the comfort of your home. HOME Story Time features children’s books written or illustrated by authors, illustrators, and artists who have faced forced displacement as refugees, asylum seekers, or immigrants. Designed for children aged 4-8, we believe that reading picture books is a way to share and discuss big ideas with young children. We end each session with an art activity from Lynden art educator Claudia Orjuela. Follow-up activities will be available for download.

Scheduled to screen every second Wednesday of the month, HOME Story Time is a collaboration with the Milwaukee Public Library, the Islamic Resource Center, Hanan Refugee Relief Group, and Alliance Française de Milwaukee. Videos will remain on view once they are posted.

The HOME Refugee Steering Committee at Lynden and Tables Across Borders invite you to join us for the second episode in our (virtual) bimonthly community cooking series. Tables Across Borders is a global food tour collaboration highlighting local refugee chefs and the cuisines and cultures of refugee communities in Milwaukee. The community cooking series is an opportunity for chefs across cultures to share tips and recipes from their own cuisines while also allowing us to explore how cuisines cross-pollinate as people migrate and need to adapt techniques and ingredients in a new homeland. Cooking is a place where we interact, exchange, borrow, and invent and imagine new ways of being with each other. This month we explore Karen rice dishes with featured chef May June Paw.

Visit the HOME virtual platform at https://www.home-at-lynden.org for recipes and to sign up for the HOME e-list.

Art Club is a virtual community of young artists who are independent in their art practice but value a place where they can exchange ideas and support and learn from each other. Students will design a long-term art project that they can pursue on their own, as time and interest permit. Weekly meetings will be devoted to check-ins and catch-ups, in-progress reviews, creative art challenges, and conversations about contemporary artists. Join our art community and share your work with Lynden art educator Jeremy Stepien and your peers.

Fee: $154/112 members per 7-week session
