DYEING

Colour changes everything! Learning to dye your own colours on yarn and fibre sets the foundation for your own unique creations in the fibre arts. From weaving with hand-dyed warps to spinning with handpainted fibre, colour play begins with dyeing. 

What you'll need to get started dyeing

DYEING WITH ACID DYES

Create your own unapologetic and unique hand-dyed yarns and colourways using acid dyes and protein-based fibres with confidence and intention. If you are interested in learning acid dyeing, please start with Dyeing Intentional Colour and then go onto Dyeing Complex Colour

DYEING WITH NATURAL DYES

The range of colours that can be produced with natural dyes has a cohesiveness and harmony that roots us to our environment. The natural dye journey is full of colour play and learning. Join us in these courses to learn to dye with natural dyes, extracts, wildcrafted materials, indigo powder, and fresh indigo leaves. 

DYEING WITH FIBRE REACTIVE DYES

Are you looking to learn how to dye cotton and cellulose fibres with vibrant, long-lasting colours? In these courses, we’ll show you how to use fibre reactive dyes for dyeing cellulose-based fibres and fabrics with ease. Learn the step-by-step process and get creative with your fabric designs! Get ready for an exciting journey of colour exploration!

Canvas 

Oh, almost forgot to share. I also had three leftover pieces of canvas which I dyed with the eco printing remains bath and gave one piece an iron dunk. 

I also had some madder dyed canvas. The madder exhaust bath was so weak, the camera couldn’t pick up on the subtle warmth in the colour. But I did get a different shade in the iron. 

So I just took a picture of the eco plant remains and madder dyed canvas together.

Gradient

Remember that super blotchy marigold fabric I dyed?? I took it most of it and cooked it in that pot of eco-printing remains. 

Then I made a 2% iron bath and put some of the fabric in. I staggered the times on when it came out to get different degrees of saddening. 

I still have blotchy fabric but in a gradient of colours now. And there are even more colours within in piece of cloth because of the blotchy spots. 

The plan is to make a patchwork quilted jacket. When I fussy cut the squares, it won’t look blotchy but intentional. 

I am very happy with these results!
