When: Sat., June 25, 1:30-3:30 p.m. 2016
Natural dyes are a beautiful and sustainable way to bring color to textiles. In this workshop, you’ll learn to create natural dye baths from osage orange tree shavings, onion skins, black walnuts, and annatto seeds. Participants will experiment with the plant-based dyes to create hand-dyed fabrics that can be turned into upcycled yarn for future projects. Using a rotary cutter and pinking shears, each participant will learn to transform bed sheets and tee-shirts into continuous balls of upcycled yarn. Use your dyed yarn to crochet or knit new projects for you and your home!
