Natural Dyes from Wood Sources Friday 9 am – 12 pm
|Sometimes different techniques must be used to achieve the best results. In this class we will explore the various types of dyes, both native and historical, which are derived from the woody parts of plants (including roots, heartwood, and bark) and what extraction methods yield the best results. Most of these dyes are considered to be light and colorfast. Many of them have fascinating histories. Please wear old clothes. Each student will go home with a notebook and small sample skeins of each dye.
Beginners aged 14 and up.
