Silk Scarf Dyeing Class

What a fun day! Saturday was my Easy and Fun Silk Scarf Dyeing class at Scattered Art in Newburgh, Indiana.

For this class we used Colorhue dyes on silk scarves. The class fee included all supplies and two scarves. Here are the class participants sporting their new masterpieces.


After my demo and instructions, I encouraged them to play on some pieces of silk before they moved to their scarves. This was a great way for them to get the feel of working on silk and also choose colors.

Some practice swatches

Did I mention that the scarves were beautiful? It was amazing how they were all unique and equally pretty. I so enjoy teaching and I also learn so much from my students.

If you are local and missed this class, I will be teaching it again here at Scattered Art in Newburgh on Saturday, March 5, 2016 from 10 – noon.

But now to clean up the dye studio, put away supplies, and get ready for my bandana dyeing class this week at Patchwork Central’s after school program. I’ll be showing 25 youngsters how to dye with fiber reactive dyes. It’s going to be so much fun.

Hope you are having a colorful weekend. Thanks for dropping by.
