1 Day Open Study Group
Date: Thursday, October 7, 2021
Here’s your chance to custom dye wool yarn or use our indigo dye vat. We’ll be doing immersion or dip dyeing of wool in acid dyes or in indigo.
Bring your own yarn or wool fiber to dye, in an amount no more than two pounds total. If you’re bringing yarn, make it into skeins of ¼ pound or so. Skeins should be tied with figure 8’s in four places around the skein so we avoid tangles. If you’re bringing unspun fiber, bring a lingerie bag or something similar to contain the fiber.
Wash your wool the evening before, in some gentle cleaner such as Syntrapol. Rinse it out after washing, and bring it damp. You don’t need a mordant, and we’ll add some vinegar to the dye bath right at the start of dyeing, which will help fix the color.
REGISTRATION DEADLINE: Wednesday, October 6, 12:00 PM
AGES: Adults and Teens 13+
MATERIALS FEE: $3.00 (Paid to studio on day of session)
We’ll provide the acid dyes and recipes. Wear old clothes, so you won’t mind if you get a little dye on yourself.
COVID-19 SAFETY PROTOCOLS: Masks are required for all students and instructors.
We continue to closely follow the guidance of our local health departments. If there are any changes to the safety protocols at the J we will update you promptly.
