The Textile Guild is hosting a Dyeing Workshop on Feb. 2, 2008 starting at 10:00 am. The workshop will be held in Santa Clara (near San Jose, 1 hour South of San Francisco). Mistress Seelie Brianna Sutherland will be teaching.
We will be running 3 dye baths: Indigo, Cochineal, and Turmeric (with one iron and one alum mordanting). The colors we will be achieving are: blues, reds, purples, yellows, and greens.
Participants are welcome to bring fibers, yarns, etc., to dye. Please weight the items, with a kitchen scale, and let us know what you are bringing, how many ounces it weighs dry, and what color you would like to dye it so we will have enough dye and mordant to dye everyone's projects. There will be a donation jar for those bringing projects to dye.
If you don't have a project to dye, but would like to participate, that is fine too.
If you are interested in participating, please email me for more information (and the location).
