Dye Workshops

I love hosting dye workshops here at my fiber farm and try to have them once a month. I love to work seasonally with what it available on the land and the farm. I have also travelled to host private events for various groups for children, adults, or both.

2 hour dye classes will provide a bit of fun and experimentation into the world of natural dye. Basic information and process are discussed, but with a 2 hour time frame its mostly for fun and gathering.

4+ hour workshops allow you to get a better understanding of natural dyes and the process from start to end. Topics include fiber types and preparation, dye plants, mordants, extraction, after baths, and washing/care.

 

Upcoming Workshops:

Spring Dye Class – Saturday April 3, 2021 – from 10am to 2pm – $75 per person

Join me for a spring time dye event this Easter weekend. We will be gathering at Needles and Spines Fiber Farm near Escondido in North County San Diego. Together we will identify, prepare, and extract dye plants from the land/farm. Discuss fiber types and preperations. Experiments with the dye colors and techniques as well try out some after baths to shift the color.

Registration fee includes all dye materials needed, instructions to take home, and a color sample card for reference. There will also be silks, yarn, and hand towels available for purchase if you wish to take home extra. I will also have light refreshments available.
