November 17th, 2019

11 - 5 pm

C2 Centre for Craft

1 - 329 Cumberland Ave

Winnipeg MB

Registration Deadline: October 31st


In this workshop, Tamara Klassen will walk us through the process of naturally dyeing yarn and textiles with dyes made from plants. We will discuss proper fibre preparation and mordanting techniques, steps to making a dye bath, color modification, as well as which plants work well as dyes (and which don't!) We'll also explore surface design techniques such as painting and printing with natural dyes and spend some time applying these methods to textiles.

You will go home with a dye journal filled with a variety of naturally dyed fibre samples, hand-painted textiles as well as tons of information that you can apply to your own projects.
