Description

Class Experience

I've been a professional dye artist since 2014, when I opened my own artisan business custom dyeing babywearing wraps and carriers, apparel items, quilting fabric, accessories and more. I've led many in-person and online during workshops for homeschoolers and adults, and manage online communities to educate others on dyeing fundamentals. 
 1 file available upon enrollment
Students will be required to acquire the following in advance (supply list upon enrollment explains in detail): - One-Step tie dye kit (the kit with bottles and dye pre-measured, available at most craft and hobby stores), or any type of fiber reactive dye (a popular brand is Dharma Trading Co, available online only). Another brand often available locally is Jacquard or Dylon. ***Important: Please avoid Rit brand dyes!**** - Rubber bands: at least 4-5 med-large size - Cotton t-shirt to dye. MUST be 100% cotton. A plain white t-shirt or tank top is preferred. - Gloves - Face mask - Liquid measuring cup (ounces) that will not be reused for food prep - Teaspoon that can be used for dyeing only and not reused for food prep - Plastic Saran wrap or plastic grocery bag - Warm water You can watch a video on an explanation of these supplies here: https://youtu.be/3-si9Uvc3cg
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
The fiber reactive dyes are not toxic in liquid form but do contain warnings about inhaling the powder, so please provide learners with a mask when handling the powder. Dyes are highly concentrated and very messy. Please ensure learners are dressed in appropriate play clothes and in a covered area that can be easily cleaned, as dyes will stain and may be permanent on any cellulose surface (including wood counters, chairs, cloth furniture, rugs, etc). The dyes will also stain skin, so be aware that this camp may result in rainbow-colored fingers and/or toes for a day or two, even with gloves! Soda ash/sodium carbonate is also known to irritate sensitive skin; I will be demonstrating ways to avoid coming into direct contact with the soda ash solution, but gloves are recommended for this reason as well.
