You Will Love This!

For the past couple of months I've been obsessed with Ice Dyeing, also known as snow dyeing (but we don't do snow here on the west coast)! I am totally in love with the fabrics I've created, each one is a surprise and absolutely beautiful..... I just ordered a dozen silk scarves to work on for my studio tour next month, can you imagine wearing this fabric as scarves?

I'll have these up in my shop soon or you can see a good video on how to ice dye here:

Interested? I'm having an "Ice Dyed Silk Scarf" workshop next month, where you will design and make a gorgeous scarf for yourself or a special someone. Since the fabric needs time to batch, I'll rinse, wash and dry the scarves for you and then wrap them up ready for gift giving!
I'll let you know the date soon!
PS. I guess you've noticed I'm back to blogging.....

Beautiful results. Do you use a grid to keep the fabric above the container?

Judy, I use baking racks but a grid would work well. I have an online workshop on Ice Dyeing starting in January. You can see further information here: http://susanpm.com/online-workshops/
