Dyeing Fun ~ Silk Scarves! March Event

Time: 10:00am - 1:00pm

Where: Blue Ridge Artisans
12018 B Lee Highway, Sperryville VA 22740


Learn dye techniques to dye two amazing, one-of-a-kind silk scarves! In this workshop, attendees will join Jennifer Heverly of Spirit Trail Fiberworks to learn the basics of handpainting silk scarves, and will dye two different scarves: one 14" x 72" 60% silk / 40% wool blend scarf, and one 35" x 84" 100% silk scarf. Fee covers all materials. Must be 18 years of age or over to participate. Because scarves need to sit overnight for the best absorption, finished scarves will be mailed to participants the week after the workshop. It's recommended that participants where dark clothing, and / or clothing you don't mind getting stained. Dye has a way of getting on things (especially where you don't want it!). We use dyes for protein fibers (wool, silk, cashmere and other animal fibers) and it is typically removable from non-animal fibers (cotton, linen, synthetics with the exception of rayon) but some slight staining may remain even after washing.
