The Color Series- Red Dyes
Dates: September 27, 2021 - September 27, 2021
Cost per ticket: $145.00
The color series on explorations of color families in natural dyeing is designed to give students a more intimate experience with a single color when exploring pigments produced and sourced from nature. Class will include an introduction to the yarn preparation process including winding skeins, washing and mordanting. We will discuss where dye materials can be harvested or sourced commercially and how to determine quantities required based on your fiber weights.
All skeins will be prepared for you to explore the colors in a variety of fibers and weights!
In the explorations of red dyes, we will be exploring the use of a range of naturally derived pigments such as madder, lichens and cochineal. Join us for a day of making and learning in our dye studio on the Ridge.
All classes run 9am - 5pm unless otherwise indicated in the description above.
For class dates that are full, please feel free to call us here at the studio and have your name place on the wait list.
