Instructor: Kristine Vejar

In this class, you will learn how-to: 

+ Print with flowers and leaves onto yarn.

+ 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.

In this class, we will be working with a yarn blank -- a skein of our Annapurna yarn knit into a piece of fabric. Once you are done with the dyeing process, you can knit from the blank and create anything you would normally with Annapurna such as a pair of socks, a one-skein shawl, or combine with more yarn to create a larger piece. (An eco-printed sock blank as a contrasting color in a yoke sweater would be divine.)

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

~~~

Your class enrollment includes: 
+ One Annapurna sock blank prepared for dyeing (merino/ cashmere, approx 112g / 385 yards, fingering weight)
+ Dye plants (Flowers will be provided but please feel free to bring flowers from your garden to experiment with.)
+ Tools and materials to complete the dyeing process. 

    The Modern Natural Dyer is recommended.
