People have been creating
color from nature for thousands of years, regionally from insects, minerals,
mushrooms, plants bark and roots. This
hands on, informative class will go over dye history, fiber preparation,
mordant selection and preparation. We will
look at what I call the humble dyes: weeds, garden plants, foraged materials,
and the exotic: minerals, insects, and other plant based dyes not available
locally. We will go over extraction
techniques for making your own dyes, as well as how to use commercially
available premade dye extracts.
This workshop will cover a little bit of everything, a great place to start if you are thinking about working with natural dyes.
Bring rubber gloves.
