Candy Kuehn

This is the go-to workshop for learning the fundamentals of dyeing with acid dyes. You will learn safety precautions and methods when using acid dyes, including which types of fibers can be used. Then learn a repeatable method of mixing and dyeing using chemistry with common measuring devices. Come away with the knowledge and experience to try dyeing on your own, as well a few fabric swatches to reference or add to your stash. This workshop provides a broad beginning working knowledge in the use of wash fast acid dyes. Great for beginners! Materials fee $35, payable to the instructor. **See supply list of items you need to bring with you to class**
