January 25th & 26th, Natural Dyeing Workshop with Mary Lessman.

For most of time colors in textiles came from the everyday plants and animals that surrounded people. the colors that have mellowed over the years give the wall hangings of the Middle Ages their warm, earthy look.  Today we can make bright yarns in the colors of the rainbow. Each dye pot will give 25 samples using different mordants and combinations. You can mix and match the dyestuffs to produce a more extensive palette. Learn how to make reproducible colors that play well together. Students will go home with sample cards of all the colors we produce.

All dye materials and yarns will be provided. Supply fee $45 CAD included in price.
