Sustainable Design Series
Natural Dye: Full Spectrum Sampling with Madder, Weld + Indigo

with Erika Molnar

November 24 + 25
10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Tuition: $180.00 + $30 materials fee + HST
Maximum 10 participants

Working with only three natural dyes, participants in this workshop will explore and sample a full color spectrum. Building multiple sets of natural dye swatches helps dyers develop an understanding of rich, complex, repeatable color. Students will learn about the mordanting process and how to achieve repeatable color gradients. Working with pre-mordanted cloth, students will explore these gradients in each color family. Each student will then create for their own reference a beautiful notebook of 15 sample cards showing 25 colors on each card, with recipes for each color.
