In this workshop, participants will focus on creating varied shades of red using natural, plant- and animal-based dyes. From cochineal to madder, we will discuss the ways in which our beautiful Earth provides us with a color palette unmatched by synthetic dyes. We will discuss and experiment with different mordants and afterbaths. Participants will begin to create their own natural dye reference book using the samples they create in class. All students will take home a hand-dyed scarf, which they’ll make during the workshop. A $75 materials fee is due to instructor for dyes, scarf and additional materials.
