Learn how to dye plant fibers in rainbow skeins in your very own colors!
No previous experience needed.
Get step-by-step instructions on how to hand paint your own beautiful skeins of cotton, rayon, Tencel®, linen and other plant fibers using fiber reactive dyes.
In the morning, you’ll jump right into the process and dye a tonal skein in your favorite color. While that skein is batching, we’ll talk about color combinations and get started dyeing some more complicated colorways.
In the afternoon, we’ll continue dyeing your skeins and by 3 p.m., we can rinse the first skeins from the morning.
