Handpainting & Speckling Yarn
Instructor: Kathy Martin
Required Skills: No prior experience or skill needed. No pregnant students please.
Class Description: Remember finger painting in kindergarten? This class will be almost as much fun and with few restraints. I will give an introduction to handpainting wool yarn with acid dyes and citric acid. The class members will give up their color wheels for some adventurous play. The steam setting will be done with plastic wrap and a microwave or steamer iron. 3- 100 yd. wool skeins can be dyed and taken home to dry. This will be sufficient yardage to finish 3 small projects or 1 larger project.
Student Should Bring to Class: Wear apron or older clothing.
Supplies Provided by Instructor (included in the Materials Fee): Three 100-yd wool skeins; Greener Shades dyes, citric acid, syringes/sponge brushes, plastic wrap, ziploc bags, paper towels & gloves.
Time: 2:00 to 6:00
Cost: $126 (includes $40 materials fee)
