Dyeing with Natural Colors

August 8 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm EDT


Out of respect for students, instructors and the larger community and concern for the safety and wellbeing of all, Folk School classes for the 2020 season are cancelled. The committee will work hard to reschedule classes for a robust 2021 season.


Instructor: Donna Kallner. Use homegrown and foraged barks and blossoms to dye wool yarn with natural color. Learn about cold mordanting to prepare fiber for dyeing, brewing plant dyebaths, and immersion dyeing of yarn. You’ll go home with enough plant-dyed yarn to knit a hat, or perhaps to stitch a project in the Finnish nalbinding technique this instructor will teach at PFS September 26-27!


A minimum of 5 students need to be registered by Saturday, August 1 in order to hold the class. Maximum of 12 students.  To register for this class, click “Add to Cart” below or call 906-884-7663. For information about refunds, click on the Refund Policy link at the bottom of the Folk School page.


Directions: Follow M-107 west from Silver City to Union Bay Campground (turn right), take first gravel road to right – you are there! We are in the old carpenter’s shop, the first building on your right.
