Deepening and exploring your creativity with color can be one of the most gratifying parts of handweaving. A wonderful step to take to begin creating your own bespoke weaving palette is to learn how to hand-dye your own cotton loops. While it can sometimes feel like a big step to take, once you learn a few easy steps, it can open your work up to almost limitless possibilities.

Japanese mud dyes are the fastest, easiest, safest, and least messy dyeing method for creating your own beautiful weaving loop palette.  No toxic chemicals are involved, and no heating beyond hot tap water is needed. Originally held online in 2023, this workshop recording with teacher Deborah Jean Cohen will guide you through the entire dyeing process step by step.

Deborah gives a demonstration of each part of the process, as well as giving bespoke tips, such as what to do to change the colour saturation. This is the perfect workshop if you'd like to deepen your weaving experience with bespoke color loops made to your own recipe and design.

Purchasing this workshop will provide you with a recording of the original online event, which you can save and watch as many times as you like.

Deborah Jean Cohen is an experienced handweaver and author of In the Loop: Radical Potholder Patterns and Techniques. A retired programmer and analyst, she brings a fascinating, radical and unique perspective to the craft. 

The workshop would suit weavers who already have basic potholder weaving skills. A full list of materials used during the workshop will also be provided with your recording.
