In 4 sessions students will learn the principles of dyeing fabric and yarn with beautiful colors using only natural dyes.
Dyeing can be a great way to bring back to life a stained dressed or to give a twist to all that white yarn hanging out at home. Even better if we only use natural dyes!
Questions like “what is a dye”, “where can I find dyes in Nature”, “what is a mordant” will be addressed and a brief overview of the history of dyeing and techniques will be given.
Each student will experiment dyeing different fibers using the most famous natural dyes, such as madder, weld, cochineal and the mysterious indigo. Students will also learn how to obtain different shades of color from the same dye.
Everyone will be encouraged to experiment with some resist dyeing techniques, such as tie-dye or shibori. Students are also welcome to bring additional materials they’d like to experiment with.
