Backyard dye garden, 174 Victor Ave

In this day long class, students will be introduced to the world of natural dyeing.  We will begin with mordants, what they are, how to choose which one to use, the difference in mordanting different types of fibres, and how to apply them.

Next we will create extracts from several different dye materials, and discuss how to identify what can be used as a dye, whether it is foraged from nature, from kitchen waste, or purchased, cultivated dyestuff.  We will use these extracts to dye our mordanted fibres.

Finally, we will demonstrate how you can shift the colours of your dyed goods, using post mordants and modifiers.  

All materials and supplies will be provided and each student will have the choice of dyeing fat quarters of cotton fabric, organic cotton napkins, or tea towels.

No experience necessary

Please note that this class will be held OUTDOORS in the backyard at my home dye studio.  Students will have access to the bathroom and kitchen, but we will be spending the entire class outside, (light) rain or shine.  In the case of heavy rain or extreme weather, the class will be rescheduled.

*Cancellation Policy - class fees are non-refundable.  Cancellations made within 48 hours may be eligible for a credit to be used in our online store or for a future class, pending availability.  Cancellations made with less than 48 hours' notice and no shows will result in the forfeiture of the class fee.
