 Natural Dyeing Presentation —First we’ll take a closer look at the Peruvian wool yarns that were donated last year, along with the natural dyestuffs that we have for an upcoming workshop in April. Then we will view a 45 min video of a dye workshop presented to the guild back in the late 80s (or early 90s?) at Hickory Ridge Homestead. (Jane Campbell can possible verify the date as she is a featured participant!) The workshop was given by Rita Schwab, a founding member who has since moved away. The video is very informative regarding the basic process of natural dyeing and is a good place to start planning our workshop.
