ONSITE: Natural Dye Explorations

Natural dyeing is a wild and wonderful adventure. Getting good color saturation and permeance can be tricky. Each color has its own ingredients, process, and history. You will work with natural fiber fabrics/yarns and explore various dye stuffs and pattern making techniques.

Special Notes

  • Please wear "studio" clothes since the dyes we are using are permanent and will stain clothing and shoes.
