CraftED: Natural Dy Workshop with Tamara Klassen
November 17 at11:00 am - 5:00 pm$120
In this workshop, Tamara Klassen will walk us through the process of naturally dyeing yarn and textiles with dyes made from plants. We will discuss proper fibre preparation and mordanting techniques, steps to make a dye bath, colour modification, as well as which plants work well as dyes (and which don’t!) We’ll also explore surface design techniques such as painting and printing with natural dyes and spend some time applying these methods to textiles.
You will go home with a dye journal filled with a variety of naturally dyed fibre samples, hand-painted textiles as well as tons of information that you can apply to your own projects.
