If you have never tried dyeing yarn with natural dye stuffs, here is y our opportunity to see just how much fun it can be. Students will learn how to use different mordants with the dyes to add brightness and colorfastness to dyed yarns and we will teach you how to prepare a dyebath using simple household equipment. Each student will be given skeins of wool and wool blends and then be shown how to dye single color and color blends using cochineal, madder, osage orange, and a few other natural dyestuffs to create a range of glorious colors. Juanita will also show you how to make concentrated dyes to paint on your skeins for variegated yarns. All materials included with tuition.
