DON'T MISS THESE!
Natural Dye Textiles Workshop
Forage and formulate your own natural textile dyes using unusual materials like tea bags and avocado pits.
Join Telluride fabric guru Kathy Green at her indoor/outdoor studio to experiment with various natural and eco-dyeing techniques. Using a variety of natural dyes, mordants and color changers, students will be able to experiment and create a number of different results. Students will be asked to bring some foraged plants and kitchen scraps with them on the first day (think tea bags and avocado pits). The group will supplement their dyeing options by taking a foraging walk to collect additional materials. Find out what rust, tea and more natural colorants can create.
Students should consider wearing comfortable walking shoes, sunscreen and bug repellent. Dress in layers, and a bring a lunch and snacks. Students are encouraged to bring wool roving and yarn to dye, as well.
The class runs July 31- August 3rd from 10am - 4pm each day. All materials are included.
Flying Iron Ranch Alpacas from Montrose, home to Makulu son Chimera's Galileo, Rocky Bay son MultiChampion Xanadu P Descant and Road Warrior son MultiChampion Xanadu P Corsair will be showing their fine Alpacas on the lawn in front of the school where you can get yourself a ‘selfie’ with these wonderful fiber sources.
Watch for demonstrations of various techniques throughout the festival!
