In this class, students will learn how to dye both fabric and yarn with fiber reactive dyes using a dye bath. We will learn how to create a dye bath, how to create stock solutions, how to mix colors, how to recreate the same color, and how to create different depths of dye with the same color. This is a technical class where we will learn mathematical equations to create dye baths. In the end we will create a small color reference guide of some colors.
