Natural Dyepot

The Natural Dyepot

Natural dyes historically were obtained and used only in raw form (plants, woods, bugs, roots).This one day workshop will explore dyes in both raw and extract form. Learn the characteristics of the dyes and how to prepare them to use in a dyebath. If you desire to create fibers that are dyed naturally from stem to stern this will be your solution. No prior dyeing experience required.

Saturday, September 26; 10-4
