Natural Dyes 101

Create a wonderful array of colors on fibers using natural
materials. Explore natural dye techniques and different
mordants on protein and cellulose fibers. Use dye plants
that you can grow, collect in the area, or purchase. While
creating beautiful colors, we will discuss why using natural
dyes over synthetics is important. Build a swatch book
with test and recipes to continue using natural dyes at
home. Please bring your own fibers to dye the first day of
class. All fabrics and fibers must be 100% natural.
