Michigan Weavers Guild Dye-Day
SIGN UP NOW
We will be painting warps, and skeins of cellulose yarn using fiber reactive (cold water) dyes. Cellulose fibers are cotton, rayon, linen, hemp, tencel, and bamboo. We can also dye silk with this process, although with the cellulose auxiliary chemicals we will be using, the results may be more muted on silk. We will learn how to mix dyes and follow safety guidelines.
Workshop fee: $25 for Michigan Weavers Guild members and $35 for non-members, includes fees for dyes.
See the WORKSHOPS page for a list of supplies to bring.
