*NEW* Solar Dyeing Workshop

June 20, 2012

We had so much fun last weekend at the Solar Dye workshop… that we’re offering another one!!

Thanks Mary for sharing a picture of your work!

Date: Saturday, July 21st
Time: 1 – 3pm
Cost: $35 (+hst) (includes all dyes and dye material)
Instructor: Caitlin ffrench

This class explores the world of natural dyes. You will learn how to utilize the sun to make beautiful colours using different mordants and dyes. This is a great way to get beautiful colours without having to spend the day around a dye pot. (Although you will have to wait to see your results!)

You will be using locally harvested dyes, as well as exotic colours! You will go home with four jars to keep in your own window. They will produce lovely samples! You will also learn the health and safety tips of dyeing! Please wear old clothes that you don’t mind getting stained!

Materials: Each student must bring at least 100g of a worsted weight or DK weight yarn or roving (in white or off white) AND 4 glass jars with resealable lids (at least 250ml capacity each) Yarn/roving can be purchased at Baaad Anna’s Yarn Store.
