In this introductory class, we will briefly cover the history of natural dyes before discussing basic instructions for dyeing. The historical section will focus on madder, weld, and woad, but will also mention kermes, cochineal, murex, and indigo. The dyeing discussion will focus on madder, weld, indigo, and cochineal. This class will be significantly informed by a year-long natural dye fade test (in progress) as well as more recent experiments by the teacher. This class will not be recorded; however, a PDF of the slides will be sent to students after the class is complete.
