Class Information

  • Class Level: All levels
  • Age Requirements: 18 and older
  • Average Class Size: 8

What you'll learn in this dye class:

In 4 sessions students will learn the principles of dyeing fabric and yarn with beautiful colors using only natural dyes.

Dyeing can be a great way to bring back to life a stained dressed or to give a twist to all that white yarn hanging out at home. Even better if we only use natural dyes! 

Questions like “what is a dye”, “where can I find dyes in Nature”, “what is a mordant” will be addressed and a brief overview of the history of dyeing and techniques will be given. 

Each student will experiment dyeing different fibers using the most famous natural dyes, such as madder, weld, cochineal and the mysterious indigo. Students will also learn how to obtain different shades of color from the same dye. 

Everyone will be encouraged to experiment with some resist dyeing techniques, such as tie-dye or shibori. Students are also welcome to bring additional materials they’d like to experiment with.

Attended: Shibori Dyeing

Attended: Sewing 103: Reclaim your Closet

Joey, the instructor/teacher is absolutely delightful! She was very knowledgeable, accommodating and simply a pleasure to learn from. I would go back to take any other course she is teaching!


Attended: Weaving 101

this is a very good class. Kira our instructor was excellent in that it was definitely a hands on program. We learned terminology as we needed it, we learned all the aspects a beginning weaver should know. Kira was encouraging and supportive of the project choices, when there were problems and questions. I highly recommend this class for anyone who is interested in weaving .


Attended: Screen Printing 101

Attended: Leather Apparel Sewing

I thought the teacher was great and overall it was a good experience. I was disappointed in the facilities. It's not ideal to sew leather on home sewing machines, especially ones that aren't in proper working condition. Students had to share sewing machines.
