Day Three: Maximizing Dye Potential

JANUARY 27TH 10 AM – 4 PM $100

INCLUDES SILK SCARF, 3-PAGE FIELD GUIDE, AND INSTRUCTIONAL HANDOUT

Day three will be dedicated to working with the top 4 most common local dye species and using up the exhaust baths from our rainbow sample colors from day two. We will explore the many ways to get saturated color, extend the dye bath and achieve multicolor dyes on wool. Bring 6 oz of your own wool yarn divided into labeled 1oz skeins. Students signed up for Saturday will have the opportunity to pre-mordant overnight in the studio.  Sunday only students will need to pre-mordant 3 of their 6 skeins prior to class.
