Local Cloth Dye Lab is open from 1-4 for working on your own acid-dye projects. This is for advanced beginners and beyond. You must have attended a dye lab introduction session or have done some dyeing with acid dyes in the past. Bring your own pre-soaked protein fiber* - wool, mohair, alpaca or silk. Local Cloth has most of what you'll need for dyeing, although some personal items that you should bring are rubber gloves, mask, dish tub and specific dyes that you want to use. There are also donated dyes available for use. We use a variety of techniques and equipment - low water immersion, steaming, crockpot dyeing, etc. There is an experienced host - Beth Sellars should you need consultation in getting the result you want. Space is limited so please register!

*Acid dyes do not work on cotton, linen, bamboo or any plant fiber.  We only work with Protein (animal) fibers during this Dye Lab.

Level: Advanced Beginners to Expert
