Intro to Natural Dyes in Your Kitchen Workshop

August 27, 2020 at 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

This workshop will be conducted live on Zoom.
Explore dyeing natural wool hues with natural dye materials. This workshop will transform your kitchen into a dye studio to achieve wool that has rich saturated hues. Experiment with Osage and Madder for intense oranges, brilliant yellows and rich reds. Explore garden plants and flowers that you have on hand like marigolds and cosmos. The knowledge you gain will enable you to produce custom pallets for your fiber arts for years to come. Learn best practices for dyeing from Professor Emerita of textile design at the University of Nebraska, Wendy Weiss. Sessions will cover theory and provide time for experimentation.
