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.

A rigid heddle loom is a simple loom with alternating slots and holes through which a warp is threaded so it can be woven into cloth. The looms are foldable, affordable and easy to use.
