The Modern Natural Dyer: An Introduction with Kristine Vejar

  • Craft South

Discover the beautiful ways in which plants can be used to dye wool, silk, cotton, and linen. Using her book, The Modern Natural Dyer, as reference, Kristine will teach you the process of natural dyeing and how to create a wide spectrum of long-lasting color.


In this class, you will create a series of dyebaths from grown and gathered plants as well as from highly concentrated powders derived from plants called natural dyeing extracts. You will learn to make an indigo vat, how to create indigo dyed goods, and how, using a thread and needle, to create patterns upon cloth (shibori). You will leave this class with a collection of naturally dyed swatches and a practical foundation to starting your own natural dyeing practice using The Modern Natural Dyer.
