Learn to tie and then dye a garment or fabric for your sewing projects!

  • Appropriate dyes  and all equipment for the dye and cure processes will be provided.
  • Please bring a garment (t-shirt, pants, underwear, socks, scarf, shawl, hat, or tote bag) or 1 yard of muslin fabric.
    • Whatever you choose to dye should be as close to 100% cotton in fiber content as possible. Anything of at least 75% cotton will work, but the colors will not come out as brightly.
    • Please be sure to prewash your garment/fabric in warm to hot water with NO fabric softener and preferably detergent containing no dyes or fragrances, as these chemicals can interfere with the dye bonding with the material.
      • You can use a small drop of dish detergent in the hot wash, if you don't want to buy free and clear laundry detergent.

  • for $5, you may purchase one yard of muslin fabric, prepared by the instructor
  • for $3 per item, you can bring extra clothing items or one yard of fabric


After class

  • When the process of tying and dyeing are finished, you will put your piece in a ziploc bag and take it home to cure for 24-48 hours.
  • After the curing process is finished, you'll begin the washout process at home, for which you will receive instructions, both written and verbal, during the class. If you have any questions before class begins, please reach out to Sequoia @ sequoiamakes@gmail.com.
