Featured Program: Small Batch and Kitchen Dying
Master dyer Dagmar Klos will talk to us about the basics of home dyeing.
“You have a project in mind, you want to dye in your kitchen, you want something relatively simple, but you are not sure where to start. This program will provide basic information regarding yarns, dyes (both natural and synthetic), techniques, and equipment needed as well as resources. Safety issues will also be addressed. Be creative with color; it can be so much fun.”
Dagmar is a dye master, fiber artist, and teacher. Since 1995, she has served as copublisher and coeditor of the Turkey Red Journal, a newsletter dedicated to natural dyes; in 2002, she received the Handweavers Guild of America’s Certificate of Excellence in Dyeing. Dagmar’s colorful woven scarves appear in Handwoven Scarves (Interweave Press, 1999), and regularly grace the pages of Handwoven magazine. She lives in Chicago, Illinois.
