Let’s recycle those walnuts in the yard and learn how to make dye! Black walnuts produce an amazing, rich earth tone dye perfect for wool, silk, and cellulose fabrics. In this class, Susan will lead students in making a dye vat before letting everyone experiment with shibori techniques, color shifting, and block printing, creating beautiful patterns and textures on fabric.

Students, please bring:  a large mason jar, a skein of protein fiber yarn, rubber gloves, water, snacks and lunch to keep yourself fueled.  Please wear comfortable clothes you don’t care about getting stained.  Oh, and black walnuts if you have a lot laying around!
