Class Experience

I have several years of experience as a professional dye artist and owned my own textile dyeing shop. Some of my work included dyeing baby carriers and wraps, fabric yardage, wool and cotton yarn, clothing items and miscellaneous household items. I enjoy dyeing all types of fibers and have taught local classes on tie dyeing, galaxy and dip-dyeing, and batik. I also administrate several dyeing blogs, channels and tutorial groups, troubleshooting and assisting new dyers from around the world. I love working with permanent dyes, and am excited to share my love of dyeing with my students!
 3 files available upon enrollment
Students will be required to acquire the following in advance (supply list upon enrollment explains in detail): - Tulip 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). (Week 1) - Two items to dye. For the first class, the item must be 100% cotton. A plain white t-shirt or tank is preferred. For our second class, item must be wool, nylon or silk. Suggested items: silk scarf, wool yarn, or nylon shirt or tights. If selecting a nylon item, please ensure the tag says 100% nylon and not polyester or a different synthetic blend. Silk scarves or handkerchiefs are easy to find online or in local stores, and make great Waldorf-style play silks as well. If you choose wool yarn, tie it into a skein prior to class starting. - Kool-Aid packets (1 packet per ounce of fabric/yarn, or as many colors as you will want to use). Make sure they are unsweetened (no sugar added)! Preferred colors: red, blue, yellow and blue. (Week 2) - White vinegar (Week 2) - Rubber bands: at least 4-5 - Glass microwaveable bowl - Liquid measuring cup (ounces) - Plastic Saran wrap and plastic grocery bag - Warm water - Microwave
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
