The dye workshop went so well last time, we are hosting another! On Saturday, October 26th from 2-5pm, Liz Spencer will guide us through the marvelous color combinations of cellulose fibers and tannins. Participants will be working with organic cotton, fair trade hemp, and one of the coolest plant fibers…hand spun nettle (we promise there will not be any stinging!).
The local dyestuffs, including acorns, black walnut, sumac and iron, have a rich palette perfect for the autumn season. Participants will also learn about mordanting naturally to reap the bounty of our surroundings and dye without store-bought assists.
Each participant will receive one piece of cloth and two skeins of yarn to experiment with at the workshop. The sliding scale fee is $35-50 and anything you can contribute to help the garden is greatly appreciated! Register now at www.phcfarm.com/dye.
