Intro to Dyeing course – Maiwa, Vancouver, BC //

    • 3 day intensive
    • Natural dyes in Madder, Logwood, Cochineal, Marigold & Henna
    • Procion MX
    • Ciba acid dyes
    • Samples shown in the acid dyes between grey Jacob fleece versus cream-white Corriedale
    • I would not recommend this course if you have dyeing experience already and are liking your results. This was truly basic.

  • Cheviot in purples, kettle dye with vinegar

  • Wensleydale – kettle dyed with greens

  1. Really enjoyed hearing about your dye class.
    But be careful once you start to dye with plants it becomes addictive. Suddenly a hike in the woods will have you wondering what color the leaves and bark will produce on your fiber.

    1. Haha I am getting the distinct impression that that is exactly what happens to people!!!
