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.
The group hard at play.
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.
We have an incredible time making scarves with you. I am wondering about entire curtains now! Thank you so much for sharing your talent with us all. I know this will be talked about for months to come.
I was thinking maybe March we could do it again. Just in time for Easter!
Dolly, I think March would be perfect. Let’s set a date!
Looks like you had a very successful class… congrats! I may have to think of doing something similar at our new gallery sometime next year… will have to pick your brain about how much dye to have on hand, how long it took for the scarves to dry, etc.
Judy, Thanks! It was so much fun. It would be great to do in the gallery. Fast, easy and fun!
This looks like a really fun class — and so colorful!
Sherrie, It was and so much fun!
Lynda, what a nice class! You’re a wonderful teacher and it’s obvious they enjoyed themselves. I too am considering teaching a dye class this winter. But right now I’m busy dyeing scarves for holiday fairs. 🙂
