Using natural dye stuffs and extracts from Kremer Pigments' vast supply, you will gain knowledge and experiment with the time honored art of natural dyeing. In this 2 part series workshop you will learn about the many plants, roots, berries, minerals, and insects that have been used for thousands of years to create color on cloth. We will discuss and review historical context as well as the innovators and pioneers in the modern day natural dye renaissance. You will also come away with an understanding of how to work with natural colors to achieve the best (most vibrant and fast) results while seeing the aspects that set The Dogwood Dyer's sustainable and community driven practices apart from many current textile artists. 

Each participant will leave with a spectrum of naturally dyed hemp, silk, wool, and organic cotton fabrics, a beautiful natural dye portfolio to document and continue your practice as well as a handout outlining natural dye techniques, resources, and recipes to recreate this beautiful art at home.
