One day intensive dye workshop using natural dye extracts.  

For this class we will be using a wide variety of dyestuffs along with indigo to produce a palette of complex blues, greens, purples and turquoise/teals.  Indigo is the primary basis for this class that will use a natural vat to dye and overdye wool/mohair yarn samples.  Our color range, while limited to one particular section of the color wheel, will explore both bright and intense as well as subtle and muted hues.  We will layer 2 and 3 colors to build a formula base and develop skill working with indigo to produce approximately 50 color samples 

Please note, these extracts have been developed for the commercial dye market and while relatively non-toxic are very colorfast.  Each student will receive a comprehensive dye notebook with workshop instructions as well as notes for working on your own to dye yarns.   Included in the notebook will be a set of dye samples produced in class.

Experience: All levels.  This is not a difficult class for beginners.

Please note this class will be held in a heated tent and your hands will be in and out of water.
