Event description
Discover the techniques of using the dyes of early America

About this Event

Students will be introduced to some of the principal natural dyes used in early America, including indigo, madder, cochineal, weld, fustic, cutch, walnut, and logwood. The course will cover scouring, mordanting, dyeing both protein and cellulose fiber. Students will make up sample books with the yarn dyed during the weekend that they will take with them. This workshop will focus on yarn dyeing, but techniques for dyeing piece goods (fabric) will also be discussed. Participants should wear clothes that can get stained and bring a notebook.

Justin Squizzero operates The Burroughs Garret (theburroughsgarret.com), a weaving business he operates out of his 19th-century farm in northern Vermont using 200-year-old hand looms. He marries natural dyes and fibers with a reserved aesthetic rooted in early New England. His fabrics can be found at George Washington's Mount Vernon, and the DAR Museum, among other prestigious customers. He is also a visiting instructor at the Marshfield School of Weaving.
