Join us in Oak Grove, Missouri May 19-20, 2018 for a Redding Method Dyeing Intensive. Redding Method is becoming the gold standard of protein fiber dyeing. So, what is it? Redding Method of Dyeing
is a dynamic protein fiber dyeing methodology which combines both the science and artistry needed to create consistency of color. During this intensive, students will be introduced to the principles, tenets and methodology while dyeing their own pots of raw protein fibers utilizing Nylomine dyes. RM is a fresh approach to an age old art and students will acquire a broad understanding of technical and complex concepts which few in the fiber arts industry know. Get ready, this two day course is hands on, fast paced, and will leave students with facts and techniques which give benefits far beyond the dye pot. Below, please find the options for payment. Enrollment is non-refundable but you may transfer it to another person. Transferring is only possible to the same retreat which was initially enrolled in. Payment plan (located at bottom of page) does have an additional fee. Thank you so much for your support. All levels of fiber artists welcome.
