Explore Natural Dyes In-Person
This quarter we'll explore some methods of dyeing textiles using natural sources!
We will test different plant and animal fibers as well as various dye stuffs. Does cotton hold color better than linen? Will onion skins dye wool? Do iron objects in the dye mixture enhance color?
We'll be scouring, mordanting and dyeing! Depending on the pace of the group, the first few sessions will focus on prepping our materials, while dyeing will come later. A big thanks to the Grounds department for their help in this workshop series!
