Course reviews

I really loved the whole experience of dyeing roving.  I had no idea what to expect because I am a complete novice. Some things went over my head (the more technical terms) but I very much enjoyed the two methods of dyeing that you showed us.  I just love the two pieces of roving that I came away with. Very beautiful, some of the effect is like velvet!

Although I had done some dying of yarn before the workshop I had not been successful not felting fiber while dying.  After the workshop I had two good techniques to work with fiber that had not felted while using merino.  I was able to play with a color combination I had been thinking about.  I received numerous tips on equipment, and strategies to use.  This was time well spent and a great value considering small class size, your right in an active studio and have a great teacher.
