(3-4 colors) We will dye wool yarns and felts.- We will also explore basic techniques of shibori for one of the dyes.- Please bring:1) An old/new glass jar like a Mason jar or emptied store-bought pasta sauce jar.2) 4 plastic bags for wet yarns and fabrics.- I will wash and mordant yarns, felts and cotton fabrics to prepare them for dyeing. I will pre-make all the dye baths because it will take a lot of time to extract colors. But, in the class I will explain how to prepare yarns and fabrics, and I will demonstrate how to extract colors from plants.If you can bring flowers from your garden or nature walk (dried or fresh), it will be helpful and appreciated. I will bring some, but if we can collect more, it would be better. We will like-wise appreciate collected avocado pits.
