Fabric Dyeing with Salt with Ellen Keets

Salt may not be good for your health, but it great when dyeing your own fabric!

Join Ellen Keets as she guides you through the process of dyeing fabric by using different types of salt to create beautiful, one-of-a-kind fabric that can be used in quilt making, garment construction, art quilts and so much more. 

The class fee includes a kit containing fabric, paint, and a variety of salt samples.  (See supply list for full kit description and what you will need to provide.)
