Overdyeing with Natural Dyes with Dagmar Klos

Spacer 10x10 pixels

Just as primary colors—blue, red, and yellow—combine to produce the rest of the color wheel, natural dyes can be combined and modified to produce a full color palette.

Building off of principles discussed in Dagmar Klos’s companion workshop Natural Dyeing, in this video, she will demonstrate how to create a full range of hues and tones using the process of overdyeing. By dyeing fiber or yarn multiple times with varying colors, you can create new and vibrant results that aren’t possible with just one dye bath.

Excellent companion to 1st video Review by Sheila
Rating

Clear instruction & demonstration on how to start and use an indigo vat would have made this video worth the price by itself. AWESOME!! She overdyes the cochineal, marigold and osage skeins from the first video to make oranges & greens. Also demonstrates iron and acid modifiers. The first part of the video is a discussion of dye and fiber materials, equipment and safety. The second part is hands on in the dye studio. Together I think these two videos provide all the information you need to make a full range of colors in the dye kitchen :-)

Good overview, look at the big picture. Review by Khimba

I really appreciate Dagmar' s videos--I have the books and I have experience with dyeing, and the books will always supply the recipes--what I get from Ms. Klos is the big picture, the framework it fits in. I've gotten important safety information from her that I didn't find elsewhere, but that's just one of the plusses.
