Add some color to your life. Local artists, Kathy McElroy and Jackie Miller, will demonstrate a variety of dyeing techniques throughout the day, as well as sharing information about types of dyes and the dyeing process. Each student will dye two silk hankies and two silk scarves during this fun-filled and informative day. Students will use natural dyes to embellish their silk hankies, and ink dyes to create bright designs on their silk scarves. All materials are supplied by the instructors and are included in the price of the class. Students may bring a lunch to eat onsite or may leave to purchase lunch at a nearby restaurant during the noon to 1:00 lunch break. Cost: $70 (includes all supplies.
