10:00 am — 1:00 pm
Class will take place outside/in our warehouse and is limited to 10 students. This workshop is ideal for the person who loves color and the distinctive look of hand-dyed fabric but doesn’t want to worry about preparing multiple dye solutions, or learning the science behind dyeing. We will work in quart-size mason jars and plastic containers — please bring 6–12 jars/containers (quart-sized, MUST have lids) with you to class, and wear old clothing that can withstand an accidental splash of dye. Bring your own fabric (½ yard or fat-quarter sized) At least 3 yards — cottons, silk, rayon — that has been prewashed (do not use fabric softener). In addition to fabric, consider bringing your doilies, trims, hankies, etc to dye. All dyes and auxiliaries are included, and registrants will also receive one (1) yard of PDF cotton to coordinate with their own fibers and textiles. Your result will be a huge stash of beautiful, one of a kind textiles!
