Silk Dying
Dye four different silk scarves while learning four different silk dying techniques. Ecoprint, Indigo Vat Shibori Tie dye, and Ice Dying will all be covered in the class. As well as the art of over dying.

Ecoprinting
Learn to use leaves and other vegetation and flowers to create unique prints on a silk scarf. this will be a shortened, less intensive instruction of ecoprinting then the class taught here by Steve Clark every year. If you wish to dive a little deeper with ecoprinting, consider signing up for his class here next summer.

Ice Dying
Let the whimsy of melting ice make some fun color patterns on a silk chiffon scarf. Mix all of your favorite colors and see what happens while using this unique, fun dying technique.

Indigo Vat & Shibori tie dye
Learn to make an organic Indigo Dye Vat. Dye a silk chiffon scarf folded and tied Shibori style.

Tie Dye
This isn’t your usual hippie tie dye. Using richer jewel and earth tones we will make fun patterns using lids and rubber bands.

Over Dying
Over dying is the technique of doing just what it sounds like you would be doing. Taking something that you already dyed and putting it in pot after pot of different colors, layering many colors together.

While most of the dyes we use are commercial dyes, we will also discuss natural dyes, mordants and even indigo dying.

All levels welcome
