About the event

Join us at Willow Grove Traditional Art School for this 2 part workshop series on Dying and Felting from local fibre artist Barbra Kuehn.

Barbara first started dyeing with plants in 2008 when her first child was born. In her quest to have natural clothing for her new baby she started dying wool and silk to knit baby clothes. Later on she became a part of a wool group at the Waldorf school in Switzerland where she learned new techniques and skills.

Barbra has gained much experience by doing and really likes the full circle; from picking the plants, to dying the wool, to then creating an art project.

Come out and learn how to process raw wool in preparation for turning it into an art project or piece of clothing.

Part 1: Dying Workshop ( classes can be taken separately)

We will dying wool with plants from the local area in yellow and green colours.

The typical colours from the landscape in spring!

You will learn how to :

  • clean and wash the wool when its fresh from the animal
  • prepare the wool for dying
  • dye the wool with Apple tree bark, Horsetail and Marigold
  • carding the wool (prepare for felting)
  • spinning the wool (prepare for knitting)

You will take home three different dye recipes, a list of plants from the area you can use for dying and the knowledge to do your own dyeing.

You will also take home a picture that you will create from the dyed wool and the plants used in the workshop.

It will be a fun day and we look forward to seeing you at our first dying workshop
