The Art of Cloth Dyeing
Whether you seek to create your own fabric, give new life to old items or just play with colors, The Art of Cloth Dyeing is the class for you.

You'll explore beginning and advanced resist methods, discover the secret to fast and easy washout, and salvage mistakes. Jane explains how dye bonds to different fabrics and how to create multicolored effects and patterns without muddying your colors.

"So informative and enjoyable. I learned so much even though I have done dyeing courses in the past. I have always 'glazed over' when it came to understanding the chemistry but Jane explained everything so well and the section on overdyeing has answered a lot of my previous questions on how colours react. Can't wait to get started and will post pictures as soon as I have some dyed pieces. Thank you so much for such a fabulous class."
