Carol Hunter

Instructor

Along with weaving and spinning, Carol first tried natural dyeing in 2015 and the excitement of producing colour on fibre using plants has never diminished since that first dye pot. Through countless hours of hands on exploration, supported by a large collection of natural dyeing books, Carol learned to dye with plant leaves, flowers, roots, bark as well as local lichens, and mushrooms. During COVID Carol added to her knowledge of historic dyeing practices and the science behind effective natural dyeing by taking two comprehensive dye courses offered by Mamies Schoolhouse in Cape Breton. Guilded: Mastering Natural Dyes, module one Foundations and module two Colour. Carol enjoys sharing her love and knowledge of dyeing through talks and workshops.
