Dyeing 103: Multi Color Cotton has Launched!!!!

I’m so excited! Registration for my newestDyeing-103-Multicolor-Cotton online class Dyeing 103: Multi Color Cotton Fabric is open!

In this class I will teach my students how to dye truly beautiful pieces of multicolor cotton fabric. We will cover both exploring color theory to create new multicolor fabrics and I will share the “secret recipes” for 20 of my most favorite multicolor palettes. I’ve spent over 16 years perfecting my low water immersion dyeing techniques to create stunning pieces of multicolor fabric…and although each piece is truly one-of-a-kind, my methods allow me to mix the same colors over and over again, and I can manipulate the fabric in a certain manner and predict what it’s going to look like with accuracy.

Now, I am anxious to share these methods with you so you too can create glorious, multicolor fabrics with intention!

This class is packed with details! In just the first 3 sessions there are 4 hours of video and 35 pages of downloadable PDF’s, along with a helpful excel spreadsheet. Because access to my classes never expire, you are welcome to join in the class while I’m creating it, and take your time exploring color relationships while dyeing lots of incredible fabric. Because you’ll have to wait a couple of weeks for each new session, folks who enroll while I’m building the class get a huge 30% discount!

After covering the basics of dyeing, we dye color wheels which will allow you to expand your knowledge of color theory, and stretch your understanding of color influence. I then teach you 5 completely different LWI techniques that span the gamut of control over the outcome; from lots of control over where the colors lay down and mingle to hardly any control at all.

Then comes the palettes! I’ve divided the remainder of the class into 6 more sessions, each one exploring relationships of hues around the color wheel: Monochromatic, Analagous, Complementary, Split Complementary, Triadic and Rainbow. We’ll explore that all these relationships mean and dyed multi color fabrics based on these relationships. I’ll share my “secret recipes” of my favorite multi color palettes, and I’ll also be exploring new combinations right along with you!

This page tells you all about the course, and has an “add to cart” button for purchase. Because you were one of the folks that wanted to hear about this course as soon as it was ready, I wanted to offer you a special discount. If you use the coupon code “WORM!” (because you’re an “early bird”, get it??), you’ll be able to purchase the class for 30% off, or $69 instead of the regular $99.

The first 3 sessions with 4 hours of video and 35 pages of downloadable PDF’s are ready to go. I plan to release a lesson every other week until all 10 sessions are up, and they will remain there for your access until you have the time. This is a self-paced course with no expiration date, so you can fit the dyeing in when it’s convenient for you!

If you’re thinking about taking the class, I urge you to consider enrolling now so you can save 30%.

    1. It’s totally fine to start with dyeing 103. In this class we focus on creating multicolor fabrics. We will be using spreadsheets to calculate the amounts of dye we will be using, this will come easier to people who have taken Dyeing 101: Controlling Color, but I’ll cover this amply in this class. If you’d like to avoid using a scale, I provide you with information on how to achieve results that are close to mine without the precise measuring we learn in Dyeing 101. I covered over 115 different variations on how to dye fabric in Dyeing 102: Controlling Texture, so you’ll have lots more options on how to dye your multicolor fabrics than the 5 that I cover in this class, but those 5 are more than enough to use when we’re focussing on.

      If you’ve never dyed fabric before, you may want to start with my class designed for true beginners, Dyeing 100: Intro to Dyeing with Fiber Reactive Dyes. It’s very basic and takes you through all the basics of hand dyeing with an emphasis on simplicity. However, if what you really want to do is dye multicolor cotton fabric, jumping in to 103 here is totally doable!
