Upper Canada Fibreshed and Elora Centre for the Arts Present
100 Mile Natural Dyeing with ash alberg
Sunday May 20, 2018
Additional $45 kit fee payable to instructor on day of class
Learn how to dye yarn with natural dyer ash alberg using materials from the Upper Canada Fibreshed. Using
locally foraged plants and dorset wool from Circle R Livestock, we'll spend the day learning everything from how to forage ethically and responsibly and how not to shock your fibres. Students will choose between multiple dye pots and/or eco-printing (make your own speckled yarn with environmentally friendly practices!). Leave the workshop with enough naturally dyed yarn to make a project for yourself or a loved one.
*Please bring a lunch, a pair of rubber or latex gloves, and wear clothes that you can get messy in.
**Also RSVP to 100 Mile Natural Dyeing with ash alberg to see updates from Elora Centre for the Arts!
