6.10.18. Natural Dye Rainbow with Jackie Ottino Graf
Sunday, June 10th from 10:00am-5:00pm
It’s natural dyeing season! Have you been curious about working with natural dyes, or have experimented some and want to learn more? This class is for you. Using 8-10 natural dyes and all natural wool yarns, we will make a full rainbow of 15 or so colors on cute little mini skeins that you can then take home and knit up.
We will go over fiber selection and prep, mordanting and proper dye techniques. We will learn how to make our own dyes from plants, roots, bark and even an insect or two. We will cover a few natural dye extracts, and discover how to blend, extend and modify our dyes to create an even deeper range.
All materials are provided, but please bring a plastic bag or container to bring home wet yarns. Dyeing has an element of waiting, so feel free to bring along some handwork.
Cost is $105 plus a $30 materials fee to be paid directly to Jackie.
Please bring a lunch and an apron or wear clothes you don't mind getting messy.
