Tie Dyeing and Yarn Dyeing

Fee - $20 - includes dyes and detergents.

In this class you will learn how to spell “Tie Dye”

This class if for EVERYONE! Kids and their parents are welcome.

The dyes used are NON-TOXIC fiber reactive dyes. This means we will be
doing CHEMISTRY! There is a covalent bond between the dye molecule and
the cellulose in the fiber. I may try to get you excited about chemistry.

Please wear “craft” clothes in case you get dye on them. This is not too
likely. I have tie dyed with hundreds of very young children with rare

Please bring a pair of kitchen gloves that fit you. Metzger’s or Smith’s
sell a couple types of gloves. The thin nitrile ones will work also.

You will have time to dye 2 items so you may do 1 of each shirt and yarn or 2 yarns or 2 shirts.

Please bring 100% white cotton pre-washed t-shirts if you wish
to dye t-shirts. I will have some t-shirts available the day of the class for direct
purchase from me. (Cash or check)
If you wish to dye yarn please bring white or very light colored
100% cotton, linen, silk or rayon yarn wound in a dye skein (This is a
circle of yarn, like a coiled rope.) Polyester, acrylic and nylon will
not work! They have no bonding sites for this dye. Suggested yarn Cotton Supreme, Good Earth, and Ultra Pima all available at the store.
