Do you know what Klingons and fiber artists have in common?
It's always a good day to dye!!!!
If you're still with me after that terrible joke, thank you. I couldn't resist. (Resist! that's another dye joke. I promise I'm done now).
If you've got access to a big pot, dish gloves, a dust mask, vinegar, and a few jars, you're ready to make your own gorgeous and truly unique fabrics - no prior experience needed.
I know dyeing can be intimidating, but I'm here to help demystify the process. I've been dyeing wool and other animal fibers for more than a quarter century (!!!) and I'm excited to share everything I know about dyeing fabric with you.
This class includes 20 minutes of video, including how to use dyes safely and an introduction to all the equipment I use, plus what you can use at home. I also demonstrate four dyeing techniques, and show you how each one turns out.
You'll also get a pdf download including the ratios and technique I use to make my dye solutions, how to set your colors, and a list of my favorite dye colors across three brands.
From dyeing fabric for sewing to rug hooking and beyond, this class gives you all the information you need to start making you own beautiful fabrics.
I hope you'll join me on this journey into a rainbow of color!
