Gorgeous gradients are everywhere! Want to try your hand at creating your own? In this class, you will spend the morning with Amy Rooney, the master dyer behind Vivid Fiber Arts gradient yarns. You will learn the basics of applying and setting dyes on wool yarn, including safe materials handling and wool care. You will dye a yarn in blank form into a beautiful ombré gradient (light to dark) using professional acid dyes.

There is no experience required for this class, and there is no complicated math involved. No dye powders or toxic mordants/chemicals are used. Please wear clothes you don’t mind getting “unintentionally colorful”.

This class will feature a bit of standing time, but alternate arrangements can be made for students upon registration. All dyes and chemicals are generally regarded as safe if used with appropriate precautions and protective equipment. If you have extreme skin sensitivity or a history of allergic skin reactions, please contact instructor to discuss before class.

This class may be held outdoors in a heated tent. Dressing in layers is advised.  All students should wear old clothing, no jewelry, and have long hair tied back. 

Level of experience: All levels

Materials Provided by Instructor: Class Kits include: 100g superwash wool-blend yarn blanks (your choice of single or double stranded), all dyes, auxiliaries, disposables, class handouts, charts, safety supplies, measuring and heat setting equipment.

Materials Provided by Student: none.

Homework: There may be a pre-work video or information review via email to speed up class.

This class has been sponsored, in part, by the generosity of Vivid Fiber Arts (www.VividFiberArts).
