Natural Dye Rainbow with Jackie Ottino
Natural Dye Rainbow
Sunday, March 15 From 10am-5pm
Nature offers us all the colors of the rainbow, we just need to figure out how to get them onto our fibers! This workshop is perfect for the absolute beginner to the more experienced dyer looking to learn a few new tricks. Dyeing wool yarn, we will work with 8-10 different dyestuffs in several forms: wood shavings, fresh plant material, dried plant material, insects, roots, extracts….and create around 15 colors.
We will go over fiber selection and prep, proper mordanting, and how to maximize our efforts for deep rich colors.
Materials fee covers all yarn, dyes and handouts. You will leave with at least 15 mini skeins, enough for a small project! Please bring note taking materials and a way to bring your wet yarns home with you. Dyeing has an element of waiting to it, feel free to bring your knitting.
