madder, weld, indigoWoven in the 1400’s, this tapestry still shows the brilliant colors of dyes used, including weld, madder and indigo. In this series of classes, we will explore how using just these three natural dyes we can create at least 9 different colors and almost limitless shades and hues. We will dye both protein and cellulose based fibers and keep a detailed record of our work. This is a class for those who want to deeply investigate these dyes and our products will be an extensive reference book with samples rather than yards of fabric or yarn.
If you are new to natural dyeing please take the Chemistry of Natural Dyes class prior to this series.
Each class in the series will focus on one of the plant dyes: weld, madder and indigo. We will experiment with modifiers, changes in pH and overdyeing.
