gradients are everywhere! Want to try your hand at creating your own? In this
class, you will spend the morning with Amy Rooney, the master dyer behind Vivid

of applying and setting dyes on wool yarn, including safe materials handling
and wool care. You will dye a yarn in blank form into a beautiful ombré gradient
(light to dark) using professional acid dyes.
