Easy Silk Dyeing is a fun and fast way to dye silk without all of the preparation and waiting time. We are using Colorhue Dyes which are instant set so it fast and the resulting fabrics look like you've spent hours designing.
While teaching this class locally for the last three years, I found that students always left with smiles and a real sense of accomplishment. Many dyed scarves to gift and discovered that they were too pretty to give away! Check below the testimonials from three of my local students.
I decided to make this an online class, because I wanted you to have the opportunity to also get the beautiful results my local class students achieved.
This class is for the following students:
Those who don't want to mess with presoaking fabric and waiting.
Those who want instant results.

Those who want to create beautiful dyed silk scarves and other silk projects fast and easy.

"Lynda's class was really fun. I took this class locally and she was
incredibly patient with me, an all-thumbs, non-artistic type. The class was
well organized, stayed on task, and provided me with two lovely scarves to use
- Amy A.
"It is my pleasure to endorse the scarf dyeing class offered by Lynda Heines who exemplifies attention to detail, artistry, and the heart of a teacher. The class was fun, well organized, and the perfect size with tremendous tips and ideas to bolster one's creativity. It was a rewarding learning experience."- Tena J.
Here is your instructor.
I created the popular dyeing technique called ice dyeing, writing the first article on ice dyeing, which appeared in Quilting Arts August/September 2011 issue, and taught a webinar in June 2013 on that topic. I have continued ice dyeing, working on resolving problems I've been asked via my website.
In addition to playing with ice and dye, I also love working with other ways to change the look of the fabric’s surface including, but not limited to, sun printing, soy wax batik, discharge, gelatin printing, thermofax screen-printing with dye attractant and inks, and marbling. I also love using all kinds of tools for marking the fabric from potato mashers and wood printing blocks to doilies and lace.
