Intro to Natural Dye ~ Small Group

- To Be Determined
Are you interested in a private, small-group "Intro to Natural Dye" Learning Experience? 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?!?). With this hands-on, experiential class 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. We'll dive into a brief history of Natural Dyes, Fabric Types, and Process followed by hands-on practice of Mordant, Dye and Rinsing, learning the basics of an ancient art form and practice. Students will leave with a booklet on the Natural Dye Process, as well as fabric &/or fiber samples from the dye pots and a to-be-determined fiber/fabric good. Come visit me at my home studio in the San Diego Mountains and learn the basics of the Natural Dye Process: * Scour * Mordant * Natural Dye Prep * Natural Dyeing * Rinsing Please CONTACT ME (on the Contact page--link above) to discuss what you're specifically interested in learning so I can tailor a class for you. I am open to traveling within a reasonable distance if you'd like to meet elsewhere (though driving/gas fee may apply). Thank you for your interest!
