Learn all the basics of natural dyes while experiencing the profound difference between metal and plant based mordants with The Dogwood Dyer's Liz Spencer. Many dye plants are particularly valuable for their color making potential as well as their ability to simultaneously provide natural fixative properties. A mordant is a necessary process for most natural dyers to ensure long lasting & clear color adhesion to the fiber. Learn about the local plants & natural substances that act as their own mordants & how to successfully achieve beautiful natural color without relying on mining activities and chemically processed metal salts.

You will walk away with a spectrum of fully naturally dyed swatches. Participants are also encouraged to bring a small to medium garment of natural fiber content (silk, wool, cotton, linen, hemp, etc.) to naturally mordant and dye.
