A Verb for Keeping Warm

Mapping Color: Ecoprinting with Plants on Yarn

Sale price$145.00
Coming Soon

In this class, Kristine Vejar, author and co-owner of A Verb for Keeping Warm, will teach you to:

+ Print with flowers and leaves onto a yarn blank using The Modern Natural Dyer as reference.

+ Steps in the natural dyeing process to create long-lasting natural color on wool. 

+ Which plants contain dye, their identifying properties, and where they can be found.

~~~

Eco-printing is a wonderful way to connect with your garden and plants in a whole new way. This captivating technique provides a way to bring your garden everywhere you go and to create yarn that is uniquely yours.

We will meet in the Verb outdoor dye studio and educational dye garden. (Please dress for comfort, crafting, and weather conditions.) There will be a collection of samples from the projects in The Modern Natural Dyer for inspiration. You will leave this class with a series of eco-printed yarn blank and a practical foundation to starting your own eco-printing practice using The Modern Natural Dyer.

~~~

Each student will receive:
+ One sock blank prepared for dyeing (approx 100g / 400 yards, wool content)
+ Dye plants (Flowers will be provided but please feel free to bring flowers from your garden to experiment with.)
+ Thread

    The Modern Natural Dyer is recommended.
