Off-site workshops provide us the opportunity to bring the learning to you!  If you have the venue and an audience, we can bring the education and entertainment at low or no-cost to you. Summer 2023, we partnered with one of our favorite tourist hot-spots in Gulf Shores, Tacky Jack’s, to teach families the art of Shibori tie dye using natural indigo dye. It was a riotous success and one that we look forward to recreating with other venues in the future.


Summer 2019 we kicked off our first round of Public Programming at the Learning Campus, showcasing this beautiful new facility and offering free and low-cost workshops for residents and visitors alike. Our activities included candle-making, natural dyeing, paper-making, solar-oven baking, and more. In addition, we partnered with guest speakers including the Alabama Coastal Foundation, the Lodge at Gulf State Park, and local horticulturists who graciously offered visitors an even greater depth of knowledge into the natural habitats of our community. Summer 2024 promises similar activities and more.
