This month we will be experimenting with Saffron, the stigma from the Crocus sativus. Prized for its culinary uses, it also gives a beautiful glowing yellow color on fiber. One of our members; Lynne Noble purchased a large quantity on a trip to Morocco and has generously offered to share some with us. She will also has some to sell.

Please do some research on your own before the study group so we can share and discuss our findings. There is some down time while we wait for the dye pots to simmer so bring some handwork along if you like.

If you haven't joined the us for the study group we pick one topic each month which is led by one of the natural dyer's in our group. This is not a class and does assume a basic familiarity with natural dyeing. We do recommend that you have taken a class or done some research so you can  have a  satisfactory experience.

What to Bring: 

Small samples of protein or cellulose fiber that are pre-mordanted  Some handwork (optional).

Any natural dye work to share for show and tell.

Hosted by Joyce Tromba and Lynne Noble

Social distancing and mask wearing will be observed.
