I am crazy happy when I dye. I am even crazy-happier when I teach people to dye. Last Friday, we had a remarkable day – beautiful weather, beautiful people gathered to play and discover color. It was a well-contained mess. Tarps all over the classroom. I decided to keep it inside because it was closer to a water source and less humid, but we hung our newly-hued pieces in the outdoors with lots of curiosity and comment from our neighboring shops. I felt like we were bringing this craft to light again. Comments concentrated on “tie-dyeing” mostly, but we were happy to be creating awareness that it’s all still alive and it’s not the ’70’s.
