Welcome to an introduction to naturally dyed ribbon with artist Chrysteen Borja of @WaverlyKnots. This workshop dives into a variety of specialty and unusual dyes, as well as unique substrates for dyeing with Chrysteen's expert guidance.

The four natural dyes featured in this workshop include logwood, wattle, cochineal (extract from a tiny bug found in the Southwest), and Himalayan rhubarb. You’ll find skeins of recycled silk sari and silk chiffon, along with pieces of our favorite linen blend and a cotton velvet. The combination of textile variations and dyes included creates a stunning range of colors from soft pastels to moody mauves. Explore deep purples, soft yellows, vibrant pinks and neutral tones.
