If you’ve ever wanted to learn how natural dyeing works, this workshop is for you! This workshop will introduce you to the fundamentals of natural dyeing: equipment, dye materials, processes, preparing and mordanting different fibers, and responsible foraging. Participants will also learn about resources for learning more and acquiring materials. At the end of this workshop, you will be well-prepared for one of Piedmont Fibershed’s upcoming hands-on natural dye workshops—or for trying out natural dyeing on your own.

While this workshop doesn’t have a hands-on component for participants, the instructor will do a live natural dye demo using locally-foraged plants.
