CA COLOUR 101

Featuring Fibers and Dyes from our Golden State of California

COURSE 3 HOURS- $150

A deeper dive into the world of botanical dyes featuring those plants that are either native to Southern California, can be foraged, or grown easily in our climate. The course focuses on low water, low energy preparations including how to start a solar dye vat and preserve your dye by tincturing for longer term use.

The workshop highlights:

1. Which bio-regional plants give color, how to process into dye and prep fibers for “light-fastness”.

2. Skilling students to work on their own and to identify “tried and true” plant dyes, and how to use minimal water.

3. Basic Shibori and other resist techniques

*In addition to instruction, students will leave with: A watercolor dye chart, local wool swatch library and their own hand-dyed Furoshiki Wrap

Possible dyes to be demonstrated,are listed below and are either from my garden or foraged.
