Course Description: 

Substantive dyes, also referred to as direct dyes, become chemically fixed to the fiber without the aid of other chemicals or additives. 


In this class we will learn about those dyes (specifically black walnut, sumac and onion skins) and dye both mordanted and unmordanted items. Choose from napkins, a table runner, bandanas, rayon or silk scarves, or a canvas drawstring bag plus you may bring one small natural fiber item to dye. 

If you've been wanting to learn about natural dyeing this is a perfect starter class!
