#500 Ultra Violet: A Natural Dye Study by Megan Williams, Sunday 9 am to 4 pm
Experience: Beginner to Advanced
Workshop Description: We’ll be exploring the magic of achieving natural purples from barks, bugs and roots. Come prepared to learn how to set up natural dye pots, dye with four red and pink producing dyes and over-dye with indigo and iron to achieve bright and saddened purples. 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
