We feel especially fortunate to have noted ACAC member and fibre artist; Diny Warren as the instructor for this class. Diny's interest in fibre art is longstanding. She holds a master spinner designation. "
Spinning is considered an intermediate art form as we need to create other things after the yearn is spun. I use the yarns for weaving, rug hooking and knitting In order to have the colours for specific projects, getting involved in dyeing was a natural step to take. "
She enjoys natural dyeing as it always presents an extra layer of surprise. Silk is very receptive to dyes and this makes it a great material to use for natural dyes.
Class size is limited to 8 so don't delay in signing up for this fabulous opportunity to learn about natural dying.
