Textile Surface Design Guild Meeting - Natural Dyeing for Fabric & Yarn/Thread 1:00pm Free admission

Textile Surface Design Guild Meeting - Natural Dyeing for Fabric & Yarn/Thread with Lynn Hunter-Johnston and Carol Schuld
Saturday, August 26, 1:00 - 4:00 pm
Casa Textile Studio

Summer and early Fall are the best times to gather plant materials to make pots of colour for fabric, yarn and even raw fleece. Discover the amazing selections surrounding you from your garden, different woods, and even kitchen spices.

Participants are asked to bring:
- sample size fabrics and/or yarn/thread in white or light colours that are “prepared for dyeing (PFD)”
- start collecting these suggested easy starters now for the pots: onion skins (separate red & yellow please), marigold heads, carrot tops, sumac

Textile Surface Design meetings are held on the second Wednesday of every month from 7:00 to 9:00 pm, and the fourth Saturday monthly from 1:00 to 4:00 pm in the Textile Studio at Casa. Members of the public are welcome to attend one meeting before joining the guild. Membership is $50 per year.
