Overview

We are excited to have Wax and Wane Fiber back this March for our Natural Red Dye Workshop. Come and experience the joy of this red dye. As with many natural reds, cochineal is sensitive to pH changes ranging from lemony oranges to succulent purple. This dye allows for a lot of surface design fun. In this workshop participants will learn about the history of cochineal dyeing and explore different ways of creating patterns on textiles through the dyeing process. Each participant will receive fabric samples to dye. Gloves will be provided, but participants are encouraged to wear old clothing as the dye can stain. Cost is $20 per person. All supplies and museum admission are included. The workshop is designed for ages 10 and up, anyone under 16 must participate with an adult. Advance registration and payment required. Call 410-545-5962 with any questions.
