#402  Megan Williams – Greenery: A Plant Dye Study   Full day Saturday $100

Skill level:  Beginner to Advanced

Workshop Description:  We’ll be exploring the magic of achieving a natural green from flowers, fruits and roots.  Come prepared to learn how to set up natural dye pots, dye with four yellow producing dyes and over-dye with indigo and iron to achieve bright greens and saddened olive greens.  We’ll be working on a dye study together in order to achieve 12 colors on 3 types of natural materials for a total of 36 different samples.  These samples will be used to later fill a dye binder complete with recipes to achieve similar colors at home.  This workshop will cover safety/clean up procedures, how to prepare dye materials, as well as where to purchase dye stuff.  Each participant will leave with enough dyed fiber samples to fill a dye binder.

Students should bring:  Clothes to get messy in.

Homework:  None

Material Fee:  $15  Fiber Samples, dyes, and a binder of instructions and places for dye study samples.

Class Limit:  12
