Creating Dye Recipes

tye-dyed book cover with text "Building a Dye Recipe Book"

In February, the Guild enjoyed a day-long dye workshop by members Pat and Jasna in the dye studio at the Cultural Arts Center. Participants ‘mixed’ the percentages of commercial yellow, red and blue dyes on cotton squares to create a swatch book of colors–and the recipes to obtain those colors. Each participant left with a binder bursting with color, either to replicate exactly or to use as a starting point for other dyes and fabrics.

Thank you, Pat and Jasna!
