There is no doubt that I love to teach.
I’ve taught a variety of subjects during this lifetime starting with various paid employment including teaching reading, writing, and life skills at Ivy Tech and University of Southern Indiana. For eleven years I taught journal writing both live and online.
Now I teach fabric surface design. These classes include Marbling, Indigo Dyeing, Sun Printing, Easy And Fun Silk Scarf Dyeing, Inspirational Prayer Flags, Painted Zip Bags, Tie Dyeing, Leaf Printing and Art Sampler: And Introduction To Printing On Fabric here in Southern Indiana.
Currently I am only offering one online class – Icy Delights.
My Icy Delights class will teach the following:
- You will learn 3 different ways to ice dye so you can choose the technique that gives you the results you want.
- You will learn dyeing safety precautions and the complete ice dyeing process including my dye calculator, to take the guesswork out of figuring out how much dye to use.
- I’ve included pictures of how the colors split of 45 different colors I’ve ice dyed. This list will save you from buying colors that may not give you the results you want.
- You will immediately be able combine pleasing colors with my favorite color combos list. But with the master list, you’ll be able to create you own easily too.
- You will also learn which are the best dyes to control color splitting.
- You will receive detailed information about the supplies I use, and a supply checklist, making it easier for you to get started.
- To keep you organized, you’ll receive a worksheet to keep notes on your dyeing sessions.
- Lastly, in the pattern section you will learn over 11 different folding and clamping techniques to really show off your ice dyeing skills.
I recently closed the classroom, but the class is still available through this website for the reduced price of $25. Instead of a classroom, all pdfs will be sent directly to you to download. You will be able to access the videos on a password protected page here. If you are interested in more information, or would like to register, email me at email@example.com.
Do you have tatting classes?
Hi Carol, No, I don’t tat. I bet if you google online tatting classes you’ll find a couple. Thanks for dropping by. Lynda
I’m just trying water marbling on silk scarves and it’s so much fun and so pretty! I do have one issue I’m hoping you can give me some guidance. Between scarves how do you clear all the paint from the carrageenan/water mixture? I’m using paper towels and newspaper but can not seem to get all the paint. The paint seems to be along the edges. Am I worrying about something that I should not ? Thanks in advance for any advice.
Linda, Sounds like you are doing all you can do and what I’ve done between pieces. Just clean it with newspapers or paper towels as best you can. So glad you’re having fun!
I was wondering if you teach your classes in person as well as online. I just realized you’re in Indiana; I live just outside Indianapolis.
Hi Tammy, Yes, I have taught classes locally and have traveled to teach groups. Please feel free to email me and let me know what you are looking for – firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hi! Each year there is a group of 11 of us and we do new things. We are interested in dying our own personal silk scarf. I was also looking for a soap making class… but these seem hard to come by!
The weekend of our party upcoming is Sat Jan 30th.
Hi Vicki, That sounds like a lot of fun. Check out my Easy Silk Dyeing online class (https://www.lyndaheines.com/easy-silk-dyeing) and then teach it to the group! Or better yet, have several of them sign up or purchase gift certificates. As for soap classes, my hubby and I did a demo years ago, but having a hands-on class I would think would be hard to find for that many people. There are issues with protective eyewear and gloves, and dealing with the lye. Have fun.
Are you currently teaching classes in person? I am the Programs chair for the Greater Ann Arbor Quilt Guild in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and am exploring classes we might want to have for 2022. I see lots of tutorials listed, but not much info about classes.
Arlene, I sent you an email regarding this. I don’t plan travel to teach in the near future. Thanks for stopping by.
