Dyeing with Cochineal Workshop Lancaster, PA
Dyeing with Cochineal
A workshop with Linda Kluge-Mansfield of Avalonblue
Sponsored by Herbs from the Labyrinth, LLC
Saturday, January 20, 2007 11 am until 3 pm
Join us as Linda shares techniques for traditional dyes, a skill going back
at least 6000 years. From the realms of magic and tradition, she'll fascinate
us with lore about the dyers, who were considered skilled alchemists and
keepers of secret knowledge. In the hands-on portion of the workshop, each
person will dye a silk scarf in a dye-pot we will set up together using
Cochineal, which gives a range of beautiful pink & mauve colors. Additional scarves, silk camisoles and other goodies will be available for purchase.
Cost for the workshop is $45, & includes one silk scarf. Register at
Radiance, or send your check & registration information to Herbs from the
Labyrinth, LLC, 9 W Grant St, Lancaster, PA 17603, or go to

Space is limited to 8 people, so register early! You may choose to come at 1 pm just to use the dye pot if you prefer, cost is $20.
