Last night I taught an ikat dyeing class. Before teaching any class, I like to review the whole thing at home that week. That means making the item that I will be teaching. This allows the information to be fresh in my mind, and allows me to better answer any questions or problems that might arise during the class. So I dyed 3 hanks of Lion Brand's Fisherman's Wool with Kool Aid using ikat dyeing techniques. The above photo is of my 3 hanks drying after a 2nd dye bath.
Here are my 3 examples for the class using the 2 resist techniques that I use when ikat dyeing.
I will be teaching this class again in March.
