About this experience

Learn natural dye techniques and the range of color you can obtain with the same dyestuff just by changing a few variables. With madder root we will get anything from coral and oranges to reds and burgundies! Experiment with creating a gradient set of mini skeins to use on your next project. Feel free to bring other items that you'd like to dye or overdye. Image from Botanical Colors, which supplies the shop's natural dyestuff.


Price includes thoughtfully sourced materials (no additional materials fees). You will leave the class with 100 grams of naturally dyed wool! Students also get a one-time use 15% off discount card for use during and up to two weeks following the last class session!
