My Easy Silk Dyeing online class is now open for registration and it’s on sale! This class is modeled after the local classes I teach using silk scarves. However, you don’t have to dye scarves. Any silk will do.
What is great about this class is that it is EASY and FAST! I designed this class several years ago because I wanted a class I could teach locally where students could spend two hours in the class and walk away with two finished scarves. Since the fabric doesn’t have to be prepped and there is no waiting time for the dyes to set, using these Colorhue Dyes were the perfect dye to use. I also wanted a class where everyone could be successful.
In these classes I’ve taught locally the last three years, I saw students who said they weren’t artistic, walk out with not just a smile on their face, but beautiful scarves. I decided to bring this class online so anyone interested could have fun and great results too.
The class includes 12 videos. It also includes 4 downloadable pdfs. In addition to showing how to prepare the dyes, we cover dyeing samples, mixing colors, and 7 different techniques.
The class has no starting or stopping time. You work at your own pace. So if you don’t have time for the class right now, you can go ahead and register (see my discounted price offer below) and then come back when you have more free time.
Here are a few samples of the techniques covered.
These dyes work on silk. Here are some pieces of dyed raw silk ready to be added to a quilt or other piece of art.
The regular price of this class is $20. However, right now to kick off this new class it’s $5 OFF until Friday, April 13. For more information and to get this discount, check out this LINK.
If you have any questions about the class, please feel free to email me at lheines at wowway.com or comment below. Hope to see you in class!
I mentioned last post that I finished that dyed rope bowl and really didn’t like how the bottom turned out. Well, yesterday I found Ace fast asleep in the bowl. Guess it’s his now!
I love the “stripe looking” one! All so pretty.
Hi Dolly, Yep, I love that one too. We did that in one of the classes. Not sure you were in that one.
Can this method work on Radiance? It is a blend of cotton and silk. I’ll probably sign up before you respond, but I was just thinking ahead. Also, what do you think about using threads and/or yarns with this method.

Luann, It will dye the cotton but it won’t dye very strong. It really is not recommended for cotton. I would assume it’s like if you dye with fiber reactive dyes fabric that is poly cotton. It will hit the cotton but not the poly. I know it works on silk ribbon, so I’m sure it will work great on threads and yarn as long as they are silk. Thanks for purchasing the class.
Oh Lynda, how excited I am!!!! If this class is half as educational, informative, creative and downright fun as your Icy Delights class, then I am one happy camper!!!!! Can’t wait to dig right in!!!! Hugs to you…..
Marie, Thank you!! I’m so glad you’re excited. It was fun to put together although I hate being in front of the camera!! Can’t wait to see what you create. Those dyes are amazing for sure and I’ve just scratched the surface of what you can do with them.
