2 Day Class
Immerse yourself in this 2 intensive dye workshop and you’ll dye a rainbow, naturally! We’ll use 6 extracts plus natural indigo and you’ll come out with a wealth of knowledge, knowhow, and about 200 color samples!
Dyeing in gradated series using 6 dye extracts and a natural ferment indigo vat, you’ll create a beautiful pallet of colors. You will produce amazing color samples using an alum mordant on wool or a wool/mohair blend yarn and you’ll be dyeing each color with white and grey yarn and then taking part of each sample to overdye in indigo. You’ll be struch at the results and with the comprehensive dye notebook with workshop instructions as well as notes for working on your own to dye yarns and fibers, you’ll be ready to go it alone!
Please note, these extracts have been developed for the commercial dye market and while relatively non-toxic are very colorfast.
