Immersion Dyeing with Fiber Reactive Dyes

In this class, students will learn how to dye both fabric and yarn with fiber reactive dyes using a dye bath.

We will learn how to create a dye bath, how to create stock solutions, how to mix colors, how to recreate the same color, and how to create depths of dye using the same color.

This is a technical class where we will learn mathematical equations to create dye baths. In the end we will create a small color reference guide of some colors.
