Learn about mordants, why and when to use them.  Create several mordant baths for your fibers.  Prepare dye baths according to recipes.  There will be at least two red dye pots and two yellow pots plus indigo. Opportunity will be provided to over-dye red or yellow fibers in an indigo pot for purples and greens.
