Farm to Needle - Natural Dye workshop
$65.00 Sold Out
Scheduled for Sunday, September 24, 2017. From 10am until approximately 2pm.
Workshop #3 in the Farm-to-Needle series is an introduction to natural dyeing. In this 4 hour workshop, attendees will learn the basics: preparing the fibers, extracting the dye and fixing the dye.
After harvesting fresh blooms and plants from the homestead dye garden, two different natural dye bath techniques will be explored to infuse color onto alpaca yarn. Students will be able to compare and contrast how different dyeing techniques can produce color variations.
This workshop is a beautiful blend of art and science – participants will leave inspired and with some of naturally dyed yarn.
Participation in previous Farm-to-Needle workshops not required.
