Easy Silk Dyeing by Lynda Heines

Easy Silk Dyeing

Dyeing silk with instant-set dyes. 
Easy Silk Dyeing is a fun and fast way to dye silk without all of the prep and waiting time. We are using Colorhue Dyes. These instant set dyes are fast, but the resulting fabrics look like you've spent hours designing. 

While teaching this class locally for the last three years, I found that students always left with smiles and a real sense of accomplishment. Many dyed their scarves to gift, but discovered that they were too pretty to give away! Check below the testimonials from three of my local students. 

I decided to make this an online class, because I wanted you to have the opportunity to also get the beautiful results my local class students achieved.

This class is for the following students: 
  • Those who don't want to mess with presoaking fabric and waiting. 
  • Those who want instant results. 
  • Those who want less mess. 
  • Those who want to create beautiful dyed silk scarves, and other silk projects fast and easy. 

So what will you learn?

  • You will learn how easy and how much fun it is to work with silk.
  • You will learn how to prepare the dyes and the silk for dyeing.
  • You will learn six different designs to produce beautiful pieces.
  • You will create beautiful dyed silk scarves and fabric that you can sell or gift.

Testimonials

Thanks for a great class. Everything was very understandable and it looks like a terrific activity to enjoy with friends and family alike. Keep on experimenting. You come up with such interesting new techniques."

“I’m not artistic in the least, but Lynda’s scarf-dyeing class intrigued me, so I signed up. Thanks to Lynda’s great explanations, her enthusiasm for this process, and her patience, I left the class at the end with two beautiful scarves. I kept one for myself, since I dyed it especially to match a sweater, and I gave the other to my sister, who loved it. It was amazingly easy and lots of fun!”

"Lynda's class was really fun. I took this class locally and she was incredibly patient with me, an all-thumbs, non-artistic type. The class was well organized, stayed on task, and provided me with two lovely scarves to use
as gifts."

Hi, I'm Lynda Heines

Thanks for checking out my studio.

I created the popular ice dyeing technique back in 2011, and have been teaching it online for over four years. 

In addition to playing with ice and dye, I also love working with, and exploring other ways to change the look of the fabric’s surface. 

I love sharing my passions. Encouraging and empowering my students is an important part of my work. 

Here is what is included.
