Have fun learning how to easily dye silk. No experience with dyes needed. The instant setting silk dyes are non-toxic and anyone can create a variety of effects in the process. Dyes are provided. Learn the new multi-color baggie technique. You won't get muddy colors as the dyes bond so fast to the silk. Walk away wearing your artwork. Or if you are going to make it for a gift, learn to create a hand dyed silk organza (sheer) greeting card. The scarf easily folds and can be inserted into the card for mailing to your loved one. Ages 17 and up.
