Learn how to get multiple colors from a single natural dye pot!
In this full day workshop, we will:
- review preparing a dye bath
- review traditional pre-mordanting with alum
- learn how to use after-dye mordants to shift color
- learn how to thicken mordants to paint designs that will give you multiple colors from one dye bath!
You will leave the class with a handout describing all processes, samples of each process, and a wearable piece of fiber art handmade by you!
Students must have either attended Introduction to Natural Dyes or have previous experience with natural dyeing.
Instruction at Fiber Arts Bloomington Studio (611 W 11th St) from 10am to 5:30pm with an hour break for lunch (on your own)
