One day intensive dye workshop
using natural dye extracts. We will
begin with a short discussion of dye theory as it applies to both chemical and
natural dyes. Dye extracts will be mixed
in a 1% equivalent stock solution for mixing colors For this class we will be using a wide
variety of dyestuffs along with indigo
to produce a palette of complex blues, greens, purples and
turquoise/teals. Indigo is the primary basis
for this class that will use 2 natural vats.
Our color range, while limited to one particular section of the color
wheel, will explore both bright and intense as well as subtle and muted hues. We will layer 2 and 3 colors to build a
formula base and develop skill working with indigo.
Please note, these extracts have been developed for the commercial dye market and while relatively non-toxic are very colorfast. Each student will receive a comprehensive dye notebook with workshop instructions as well as notes for working on your own to dye yarns. Included in the notebook will be a set of dye samples produced in class.
