Intermediate Natural Dyeing - with Caitlin ffrench

In this course you will learn how to naturally dye a rainbow of colours using wildcrafted and bought natural dyes. You will go away with the skills to troubleshoot problems, how to use dyes and modifiers together to achieve dynamic colours, and colour theory.

We will be using wool yarns from Long Way Homestead and cotton fabric squares so you will see how colours change based on the fibres used.
