Funky socks are fun! Ever thought of making your own? Then come spend the afternoon with Amy Rooney, the master dyer behind Vivid Fiber Arts yarns. You will learn the basics of applying and setting acid dyes on wool yarn, including safe materials handling and wool care. In addition, you will explore ways for making different color effects, and dye a pair of your very own.
