Lisa Check has been teaching dyeing, spinning and weaving over 30 years. She decided to "buy the farm" and now tends angora goats and fine wool sheep. She loves to teach and is able to break down the steps into easy, understandable steps.
Before I did your workshop I was curious about dying, but intimidated by the process. Afterwards, I was more confident about the process and braver about experimenting with new ideas.
I knew the basics of color theory before the class, but not some of the details we got into. The zoom sessions were really helpful to talk with you and the other students. I would tell my friends that it was a lot of fun and that they should take the class.
