Warp and Weft Dyeing with the Kangaroo Dyer
Are you looking for a color you can't find on the shelf? Once you learn how to get the color you want, you are free to individualize your work. This workshop is for weavers who want to personalize their work by manipulating colors in the warp and weft. Students will use two types of dyes, an acid dye for protein fibers such as wool and alpaca, and a fiber reactive dye used for plant fibers such as cotton, bamboo, or Tencel. Students will prepare their warps ahead of class time. For wefts, students will use a warping board or skein winder during class to prepare their yarn. There is a $10 materials fee payable to the teacher at the time of the class.
