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.
