3 Thoughts on “Natural Dye workshop – 4/16-17th

  1. She’s good!

    Do you know off-hand what the fee is?

    Sorry – I didn’t notice they didn’t announce all the vitals!

    The class fee is $125, plus $20 materials fee. I don’t know if there’s a surcharge for non-members. NHWG does a great job at keeping workshop fees low.

    Also note that this class is suitable for knitters too, so bring your non-weaving friends!

    Note that one thing that’s cool about natural dyeing, unlike the fiber reactive chemical dyeing that I do, is that you can do it on any natural fiber – cellulose or protein. Wool,
    cotton, bamboo, silk, mohair, angora, etc. all work! I’d imagine rayon and tencel also work, but check with Sara first.

    Happy dyeing!

    I contacted Mary Ann to register for this workshop, but she informed me that it has been cancelled due to insufficient registrations. Too bad!
