    Saturday, August 10, from 10:00 am-4:00 pm

    1 class, 6 hours

    Skills Learned:
    Learn to use natural materials for dyeing yarn with Jackie Ottino Graf, a Maine artisan dyer. Jackie will guide students through the dyeing process using mini skeins of yarn. Each student will dye 12-15 mini skeins, enough to make a small- to medium-sized project. During the workshop Jackie will discuss foraging for dye materials in the environment, as well as methods of making dyes from natural materials from around the globe. We will discuss proper fiber preparation and mordanting techniques for beautiful, long lasting color.


    Yarn and all dye materials; plus 6 hours of instruction

    Additional Info:
    Dress for comfort and the possibility of getting a little wet during dyeing; some like to wear an apron. Students will need to be standing for most of the class. Bring a lunch and a waterproof bag/container for taking home damp yarn.
