Dye Lab: Painting Protein Fiber with Acid Dye, March 11, 1-4pm.
Join us for a fun afternoon in the studio, working on your own projects. This Lab is for Advanced Beginners and beyond. You need to bring your wool, mohair, alpaca or silk pre-soaked in vinegar, rubber gloves, plastic bins and dye to share. We use a variety of techniques and equipment - low water immersion, steaming, crockpot dyeing, etc. with consultation from an experienced leader @curlyfurr - to get the result you want. Check out localcloth.org/workshops for more info. #localclothinc #fiberart #aciddye #creative

Turn your Valentines bouquet into a work of art with Fiberhouse Collective’s Flower Dyeing Kit, now available through Shop Local Cloth!
Turn those valentines flowers into flower prints with Fiberhouse Collective Flower Dyeing Kit. This DIY kit includes dried flowers from their Asheville dye garden, mordants, used rubber bands from past classes and projects, and a piece of fabric to imprint with flowers.
