    Jackie Ottino Graf is a colorful fiber artist with lot's of professional and creative experience, this is her dying with natural materials "101"course. If you have ever wondered how in the world one can make so many amazing colors naturally, this is the class for you.  Everything is included, (600 yards of merino yarn, all dyes and equipment, handouts etc). At the end of a fun and informative day,  you will go home with a stash of small skeins of yarn in each color. 

    We will go over proper fiber preparation and mordanting techniques for both safety and vibrancy.  While natural dyes can be used on all types of fiber, we will be focusing on wool yarns in this workshop. 

    Please bring a lunch, any note-taking materials you may wish, and clothes you don't mind getting dirty. Please also bring a plastic bag or container to bring home wet yarns.

    🙂 Dyeing has an element of waiting, so feel free to bring along some handwork, like knitting or spinning to do while you visit and wait!

    Cost is $150. PLEASE Call 207-664-0222 to register.
