This is where we begin. By creating colour on yarn, fibre, or fabric, we create the materials that we work with in all our other crafts. If you are interested in learning acid dyeing, please start with Dyeing Intentional Colour and then go onto Dyeing Complex Colour.

And if you want to learn natural dyeing, begin with Natural Dyeing Basics.
