Dye Day at Artistic Artifacts



A couple of times a year Judy Gula of Artistic Artifacts in Alexandria VA holds a Dye Day Class. It’s 3 hours of fun. For a small fee for the class, Judy provides a great space to work, the dye and chemicals AND she mixes the dye for you.  I highly recommend it.  Her shop is special too, and she carries a wide selection of gorgeous wooden printing blocks that are also available online.  I’m not affiliated with the shop in any way other than to be a big fan of Judy and Sharon who run the place with heart.

For now, the dyed fabric is percolating in the warm sun for a day or two. I’ll show you the results when it’s all done.
