Join Laura Easterling as she takes you on an adventure into natural dyes. This will be a very basic introduction to the natural dye indigo. This will be a dye bath for protein fibers (wool, alpaca, yak, silk, etc).  You can bring your own skeins of yarn to dye, or can purchase them in the shop (prices start at $6).  The class cost includes dyeing 2 skeins of yarn, and then there is an additional charge of $2 per skein.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are pregnant, you are not allowed to participate in this class.

Materials provided: dye materials

Please bring: an old apron and wear clothes appropriate for a messy environment

Minimum # students: 6

If it rains, we will reschedule this for June 15


Instructor: Laura Easterling

Laura Easterling taught herself to crochet in 1969 and learned to spin in 1983. Learning to use natural dyes came next, and a few years later came dyeing with fiber reactive dyes.  She and her husband John have had a booth at the Taos Wool Festival for 17 years where they sell their hand-painted yarns and roving along with natural dyed yarns. Laura has also served on the TWF board for 8 years. She loves to share her knowledge and love of the fiber arts, and has taught classes in crochet, natural dyeing, and dyeing with fiber reactive dyes (hand painting).
