Natural Dyeing of Yarn + Fabric

Learn to select and prepare locally harvested plant materials to dye your own yarn and cloth. We will go over how to identify the right dye plants and safely mordant them. Then we’ll make twelve to eighteen types of dye vats, including indigo. Everyone will go home with several ready-to-use yarns or yardage, as well as dye baths for later use.
