how to discharge natural dyes.
Three-day workshop cover everything in the two-day workshops plus: in-depth exploration of natural dye techniques • working with indigo, cochineal, weld and logwood • processes for mordanting fabrics prior to dyeing with natural dyes and printing with plants • over-dyeing to create a wide spectrum of colours.
Workshops are held in a rustic barn located on 23 acres
of meadows and deciduous trees, minutes from Tweed and 37 km north of Belleville, Ontario. The setting is very tranquil, with plenty of botanical materials from the property and dyer’s garden.
At the end of the workshop, participants will leave with

in textile art or sewing projects.
