Foraged Color: Introduction to Natural Dyes

Natural dyeing is a science more than an art. It can be intimidating, especially once you realize it takes a whole lot more than soaking a few petals or leaves in water. But nature offers a bounty of colors to those who are willing to try. During the morning, we will work with some easy dyes that don’t require a mordant, like onion peel and black walnut. In the afternoon, we’ll dig into mordants and modifiers. Students should bring something to transport their damp yarn home.
