Take a look at what everyone shared from their summer efforts.
Here’s an update on the CWG Dye Day planned for Thursday August 17th. Please RSVP to email@example.com if you plan to attend.
We will start at 10AM and dye till 3PM. Come when you can and leave when you must. I’ve got the dyes, but bring your own fiber or purchase a blank to play with for $.50 each. I will be showing how I paint a warp. Bring a brown bag lunch if you like. If it rains we will set up in the garage and adapt as needed.
All the natural dyes except Indigo require a mordant. If you have soda ash at home, please soak your fibers overnight beforehand. If not, you can put everything to soak when you arrive. The fiber reactive dyes will have the mordant already added. All of the natural dyes will work on protein or cellulose fibers but mordants may change for the black walnut.
I learned a lot last year and hope several changes will improve our results.
This year we will have the following natural dye pots:
Black Walnut for a nice brown.
Indigo for blue.
Cochineal for blue/red.
Madder makes orange/red.
Logwood for light purple.
Pomegranate to make green/yellow.
Please RSVP if you plan to attend.
May18, 2023 meeting will be at Warrensville Library, 11:30am. Do bring Show-&-Tell as there will be little opportunity in the prior two months to share our works. We will vote on next year’s officers. Please consider serving CWG as an officer, program committee, or other capacity.
11:30 to 12:00 is brown-bag and social time. Meeting and show and tell begins at 12:00.
To those interested in the 2023- 2024 Study Group challenge, please bring your ideas. This is an ideal time to select and plan.
