Join Deepa for a day of exploring beautiful colors that you can grow in your backyard. We'll begin with a focus on fiber preparation and mordanting and work with alum, symplocos and tannin. The afternoon will be spent preparing dye baths of Cosmos sulphureous, Coreopsis tinctoria and Anthemis tinctorium plus a couple of other homegrown dyes. An emphasis will be placed on documentation and record keeping and each participant will go home with sample sheets to begin a dyer's journal.
