Looking for an alternative to Synthetic dyes? Natural dyes can offer a dye experience that connects you to the earth. Connect the past to the present by using Madder root, Weld, Cochineal, and Indigo, the ultimate blue! Use mordants to further enhance your colors and to understand the effects of metals on your body and the environment.
Materials: All materials are included in the class fee, including three 4oz skeins of your choice in our Studio Line and one 60g test skein. You will be emailed prior to the class to pick your skeins of yarn. All additional skeins must be purchased prior to class due to pre-mordanting.
Requirements: None! Great class for beginners and experts alike, even if you have no dyeing experience at all.
Taken our Dye Workshop already and want to learn some more advanced techniques? Take this advanced class with us and learn the art of ombre dyeing on knit blanks, speckled dyeing, and hand painting, to create truly unique yarn of your own at home!
Cost includes all dye materials needed and 2 skeins of 100% superwash merino yarn (variety subject to availability) and 1 Dye Blank of your choice. Additional skeins will be available for purchase in advance or during class. If you have pre-dyed yarn in your stash that you don't love, bring it along and we'll help you overdye it! Please note that our dyes only work on animal fibers, so no cotton, linen, flax, etc. Class size is limited to 6 participants.
