CLASS: Dyeing Cotton Yarns


Saturday, June 23, 2018

9:00 am - 4:00 pm  with lunch break.

This is a full day class that will take you through the entire process of prepping, hand-painting, batching and rinsing cotton and cellulose [plant] yarns.   This is a small class, taught at my home studio, of no more than four people.  You'll have lots of individual attention.  What you dye in the morning will be rinsed and drying by the time you leave.    You'll have time to dye many more yarns in the afternoon that you can rinse and finish at home.
