#401 Greenery: A Natural Dye Study by Megan Williams, Saturday 9 am to 4 pm
Experience: Beginner to Advance
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.
Participants should bring: Clothes to get messy in.
Material Fee: $15 Fiber Samples, dyes, and a binder of instructions and places for dye study samples.
Class Limit: 12
