Gorgeous Gradient Dyeing

Gorgeous gradients are everywhere! Want to try your hand at creating your own? In this class, you will spend the session with Amy Rooney, the master dyer behind Vivid Fiber Arts gradient yarns. You will learn the basics of applying and setting dyes on wool yarn, including safe materials handling and wool care. You will dye yarn in blank form into a beautiful ombré gradient (light to dark) using professional acid dyes. There is no experience required for this class, and there is no complicated math involved. No dye powders or toxic mordants/chemicals are used. 

This is NOT a color theory class.

This class will feature a bit of standing time, but alternate arrangements can be made for students upon registration. All dyes and chemicals are generally regarded as safe if used with appropriate precautions and protective equipment. If you have extreme skin sensitivity or a history of allergic skin reactions, please contact instructor to discuss before class.

This class will be held outdoors in a heated tent. Dressing in layers is advised as later October weather is extremely variable. This class features an online learning component for pre-class welcome orientation and post-class yarn care instructions. You will receive your online class login a few weeks before class. There is no pre-work for this class.

PrerequisitesAll levels welcome Ability to listen and follow instructions essential.

NOTE:  This class will be held outside in a heated tent.  Please wear clothes you don’t mind getting “unintentionally colorful”.
