2024-09-16 – Flammegarn: Introduction to Natural Dyeing (Online)



Two Mondays, September 16 and 23 (6:00-8:00 pm CT)


Lesley Darling


This is an online class hosted on Zoom. 


Learn the basics of natural dyeing and Norwegian-inspired methods for layering color. From mordanting to using dye extracts, you'll explore various techniques, including modifying colors with the potential to create multi-color effects through using flammegarn techniques that are perfect for knitting or weaving.

During this two-week class, we'll learn the dyeing process together, and you will complete your dyeing throughout the week. You will be able to decide how you want to dye your yarn.


A kit of supplies including locally made yarn, dye, and mordants (a $40 value) is included in the cost of registration. Students will need to supply: a container to dye in (stainless steel pot, large glass mason jar, or similar), gloves (optional), vinegar (optional). 

Also, students will need to provide a computer, laptop, or tablet with a camera and mic as well as a fast, reliable internet connection.

If you are registering for this class in a location outside the United States, you will need to provide your own supplies. Please contact folkartschool@vesterheim.org when you register for more information about what materials are required for this class.
