Michelle Kaston of Essential Fibers will be teaching her methods. Most variegated commercial dyeing is done via handpainting –an umbrella term for a variety of methods of putting multiple colors of dye into different areas of a single item. In this class, you’ll spend a bit of time learning about natural vs chemical dyes and how acid dyes work. The majority of class time is spent handpainting on either sock blanks or fiber batts. Class fee includes one sock blank or two fiber batts. Each additional item is $20.
Felting and spinning classes can be booked directly for one on one or small groups when we have availability in our schedule. Mostly those classes are held during weekdays and occasionally on a weekend if another event doesn't take us out of town or has the studio space booked. Find those classes by following this link.
