Fabric Dyeing & Upcycling Workshop (May)

Using fiber reactive dyes, participants will learn various folding and dyeing techniques on fabric. We’ll experiment with different color combinations and learn some color theory to inform our work. Using these new skills, we will be able to upgrade some of our own garments to give them new life. No prior experience necessary!

Accessibility – Please email classes@kala.org prior to enrolling so we can assess if we are able to accommodate you (and your service animal) safely and efficiently.
