Learn how to dye yarn with natural dyer ash alberg using materials from the Upper Canada Fibreshed. Using locally foraged plants and dorset wool from Circle R Farm, we’ll spend the day learning everything from how to forage ethically and responsibly and how not to shock your fibres. Students will choose between multiple dye pots and/or eco-printing (make your own speckled yarn with environmentally friendly practices!). Leave the workshop with enough naturally dyed yarn to make a project for yourself or a loved one.
*Please bring a lunch, a pair of rubber or latex gloves, and wear clothes that you can get messy in.
