Natural Dyeing with Mushrooms and Native Plants

Learn the basics of natural dyeing from local dyers Amber Wasson & Raven Madison, assisted by Dotty WIdmann. We will be focusing on mushroom pigments, but also covering local native plants that work well to create color. Class will concentrate on creating a small collection of hand dyed materials suitable for needlework including silk ribbon, wool felt, linen, and embroidery threads. Topics to be covered include the collection of local dyeplants, mordanting both protein and cellulose fibers, and the dyeing process.
