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.
