Kristine's first class on Creativebug is now live! In this class, titled Natural Dyeing: How to Dye Silk and other Protein-based Fibers, she teaches you how to dye a silk scarf. This is an introductory class designed to show you the basic steps in dyeing with natural plant extracts. This video is a great accompaniment to her book, The Modern Natural Dyer.
Just like all of the projects / dye recipes which she has published, the idea is to show you the basic steps as a jumping off point, where you can make the exact same silk scarf as she has in the video, with room for you to improvise and make your own variation.
We have created this kit to make it easier for you to complete the Creativebug course. In this kit, there are three silk scarves. There is all of the scour and mordant needed for three scarves. Either dye the scarves one at a time, and measure the scour, mordant, and dye for each scarf. Or scour and mordant the scarves together, using the entire contents of the scour and mordant jar. There is enough dye to create a vibrant, saturated color, though by all means, you could back off on the dye, and create a more-muted color. 5 dyes are included: madder (orange-red), weld (yellow), quebracho red (coral pink), cutch (caramel), and logwood (purple).
This project is a great first foray into natural dyeing and to learn how to naturally dye silk.
Inside this kit:
- Three silk scarves (21.5 x 21.5")
- Dye (madder, weld, quebracho red, cutch, and logwood purple)
To complete the project, you will need:
- Measuring spoons
- Liquid measuring cup
- 3-5 quart stainless steel stock pot with lid
- The Modern Natural Dyer (recommended)
- Dye Journal (recommended)
- Apron (recommended)
