Forage & Dye Workshop: Muslin Fabric & Wool Yarn


Join me for an excursion into the woods where we'll find and collect late fall/winter plants that dye.  Late Goldenrods for yellows, Sumac berries for roses and Black Walnuts for gorgeous, classic browns.

SATURDAY: NOON - 5 pm...We'll meet at YaloRUN Textiles and then go out to my tried and true hot spots in the woods to collect the material. Then we'll go back to the YaloRUN house studio kitchen at 137 Blount Street. Here we'll prep the material, make the baths, and dye the material. We will then let them soak over night.

SUNDAY: Meet at YaloRUN studio house (137 Blount Street) at 10 am to pull the yarns and fabric and have brunch, mimosas and bloody marys! Join us in the beauty and surprise that is natural dyeing! $85 for the two day workshop with all materials included. You will leave with your dyed material, several large mason jars of the natural dye you made from the 3 different plants, and all supplies and knowledge to continue your natural dyeing experiments at home. Wear boots, bring gloves, and you kinda need to be physically able to tromp around the woods a bit. Sign up HERE.
