Class: Natural Dyeing

  • Robin Edmundson Studio 6877 E Bland Road Solsberry, IN, 47459 United States (map)

Early autumn is the perfect natural dye season.  This is a full day class that will take you through the entire process of prepping, mordanting, and dyeing with 3 or 4 different natural dyes with alum as the mordant. This is a small class taught at my home studio of no more than 5 people.  Plenty of individual attention.  We'll likely do 2 pots in the morning and 2 in the afternoon.  Always a lot of fun.

Important:  Bring your skeins already washed, tied with figure-eights in at least 6 places, and labelled with your name on a tag on every skein [Permanent marker on a tyvek tag works well!]  Any fabric should be prewashed and labelled with your name.  You get the best colors on wool, alpaca and superwash wool.

Likely dyes to be used [final list to be decided later]:  goldenrod, walnut, osage orange, onion, kutch,  brazilwood or cochineal.
