INTRO TO NATURAL DYE :: Samples + Scarves

Natural Dyes are super-popular right now, and for all the right reasons!

An Eco-Centered Craft -- Natural Dyes offer the best of so many worlds. The Arts, Crafts, Nature, Cooking, Science + Math.

If you've ever looked into it, you might have been intimidated (e.g. fiber-types, scour, mordant, temperatures, quantities, and of course, so many dyes?!?). At this hands-on, experiential workshop you'll learn the basics so you can go home, ready to experiment with a wide range of fiber-fabric types, mordants, and natural dyestuffs.

Join Jeanine Ertl, Owner, Weaver & Dyer of ANINI Designs, as she dives into a brief history of Natural Dyes, Fabric Types, and Process.

We'll Scour, Mordant, Dye and Rinse together, learning the basics of an ancient art form and practice.

* A Booklet -- "Intro to Natural Dyes"
* A Fabric Sample from each Natural Dye Pot

This workshop is perfect for a DIY-Learning Opportunity, a Friend's-Fun-Date, or a Saturday-Afternoon Creative-Experience! And, I'll have other scarves, as well as Natural Dye Kits on-hand if you're interested in buying more to dye on-site or at home. (More info about those below in the FAQ.)
