THIS CLASS IS FULL! STAY TUNED FOR THE NEXT ONE!
In this introductory dye class, you will learn the basics of submersion dyeing in pots on the stove as well as hand painting techniques. In addition, you will learn how to mix dyes for consistency and how to calculate depth of shade in your hand-dyed fibers and yarn. We will use Greener Shades acid dyes and each student will dye four 4 ounce lots.
Cost is $88. You may purchase yarn or fiber at the shop to dye or bring your own. If you bring your own, please bring animal fibers (wool, alpaca, silk) as acid dyes do not dye plant fibers like cotton, linen, or hemp.
Please bring an apron and/or wear old clothes. Bring a lunch, too. We can take a break to grab a bite while the pots are cookin'! Back up knitting is good, too. Sometimes you've got to wait a bit for colors to saturate fibers.
