- I was hoping to learn more about different types of natural materials to use as dyes and how to use each of them. There was only one natural product demonstrated. Although the instructor did say up front that we'll learn about dyeing all types of fibers, she only really described how to dye wool or silk. I understand that cotton dyeing is not as easy and maybe cannot be done in the kitchen, but the instructor never quite explained any of that. (Posted on 12/13/2015)
