She used to dye fabric years ago when she studied design in India. She’s admired my work at several local art shows, and she has (and loves) one of my hand dyed velvet scarves. When she read in my newsletter last month that I was now offering small dyeing classes on my patio, she jumped at the chance to set one up! We had a total of 6 people,
including Meena’s daughter and niece:
who had lots of fun dyeing their own custom colored tee shirts. All kids LOVE the feeling of gloved hands in water, this is a truth I see every time I dye with kids!
We lucked out with the most BEAUTIFUL morning weather in the past month (it’s been sooo hot) the girls had fun playing in the pool with their Aunt looking on:
(Stirling had fun in his boat with them!)
While I helped Meena and another student (whose name has now escaped me…) finish up dyeing their scarves. Everyone had a GREAT time!
