    Join us for a fun afternoon, working on your own projects. This Lab is for Advanced Beginners and beyond. You need to bring your wool, mohair, alpaca or silk pre-soaked in vinegar, rubber gloves, plastic bins and dye to share. We use a variety of techniques and equipment - low water immersion, steaming, crockpot dyeing, etc. with consultation from an experienced leader - Judi Jetson and/or Beth Sellars - to get the result you want. If you like, bring magazine pages or photos with images you find appealing, and we'll help you mix dye colors to match.

    October Natural Dye Group

    This month we will finish our series on printing with natural dyes. We will use citric acid to discharge color.  We will try this in 2 ways: on fabric that is already dyed and on fabric that is just mordanted. So, please bring fabric that is already naturally dyed. The sample in the photo was dyed with logwood but it would be good to experiment with several dyes or you can “dye” with ferrous acetate, so bring any kind of natural dye on cotton or linen. 

    For the second method, bring fabric that has been mordanted with aluminum acetate and we will discharge the mordant and then dye it  (I will bring weld extract to dye with). Also bring your screen and any printing blocks you want to use. We will make the citric acid paste on the day.

    If you are new to the group please read the attached document.

    Hope to see you there!

    All things indigo!

    We will revisit stitching in its many forms.

    Bring your cloth and needle and strong thread that cannot be broken easily by hand.

    From growing to processing to dyeing techniques--if it has to do with indigo, we will study it.

    The Indigo Forum can be found here. Consider subscribing to it and posting your questions, answers, work, etc.
