(Insert joke about dye and “orange” here)
If you’re near Cleveland, you’ll want to come to this super-fun class at Orange Art Center! See here for all the details (scroll down):
Dyeing Fabric, Yarn and Fiber with Acid Dyes
Friday, April 23, 9:30AM – 1:30PM
During this workshop learn to custom-color yarn, fabric or even spinning and felting fiber with professional grade acid dyes. Don’t worry — these dyes won’t eat away your hands! In fact, they’re simple and safe to use. We will dye wool-based materials, but these dyes work on almost any animal or silk fiber. Shannon will provide a class kit with fabric, yarns and dyes and a few other surprises. PLEASE SIGN UP BY APRIL 15, 2010.
Yay! Should be a good time. If you’re closer to Columbus, you won’t want to miss these classes in the middle of June. Stitch Cooperative members are teaching a series of workshops in collaboration with one another. They’re open to the public, and you won’t find a better price on classes anywhere with superstars like Annie Modesitt, crochet queen Robyn Chachula, Teva Durham, Miriam Felton (oh, and, you know…little old me). Sign up quicklike, they just got posted and they’ll sell out fast!
