Kristy Bishop will lead workshop participants through the exciting world of natural dyes and weaving. Whether its onion skins or annatto seeds from the local grocer, goldenrod picked from a roadside, or a more exotic dye such as indigo and cochineal that have been cultivated and traded worldwide, students will learn how to extract color that is lightfast, permanent, and brilliant. Students will learn several tapestry weaving techniques such as hatching, supplemental weft, Rya knots and more on table top looms.
