Rust Dyeing

Date(s): March 25th, 2017, 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Learn to dye a silk chiffon scarf with rust in this beginner dyeing class. Let local fibre artist Maureen Ballagh show you the ins and outs of this unique fibre dyeing technique! Students will learn how to prepare their materials and set up their dyeing apparatus during the workshop. They will then take their dye bundle home for three days and let the dye work its way into the fabric. Once the process is complete, students will have a fabulous new scarf and a fantastic new conversation starter!
