Floral Bundle Dyeing on Yarn and Cloth, October 8, 2022
Ever wish you could create beautifully speckled yarn with natural dyes? This class is for you! Trinity of Petal and Hank will share her bundle dyeing technique that produces a speckled effect on wool yarn using flowers grown in the farm’s dye garden.
Join a small group of fiber folks for this 3-hour hands-on experience appreciating the colorful potential of local dye flowers. Artisan yarn sourced locally and hand-selected for dyeing, will be provided as part of this class. If Autumn is kind to the garden, we will pick fresh flowers to use in our bundles. Dried flowers will also be available to expand the visual possibilities. Each student will dye their own custom hank of bundle dyed yarn and a dyed flour sack towel.
While the bundles steam, we will enjoy light refreshments, talk about fiber preparations, and view samples of some of the many uses and variations of this technique. An optional tour of the mill and a visit to the resident flock of sheep are also available as part of your visit to the farm.
No experience is necessary. Beginning and experienced dyers alike are welcome in this class. All materials and light refreshments are included in the class fee.
We hope you’ll join us for a fun day on the farm!
This class will be held at Get Bentz Farm on October 8th, 2022 from 1-4pm CST
