Kris Nardello Dye Class

I’d like to remind you about signing up for Kris Nardello’s class using acid dyes on animal-based yarn. Dyeing yarn is lots of fun and this is a wonderful opportunity to create your own colorful yarns under the guidance of a talented instructor. We are extremely fortunate to have Kris as a teacher, as she is one of the most sought-after and talented dyers on the Central Coast. This is the last opportunity that you have to sign up for the class, since the deadline is June 17. We could use a couple more people in the class, or she might be forced to cancel. 

Dyeing skeins of animal-based yarn using acid dyes

When: Saturday, July 15th     9:30-1:30

Cost: $55 payable to Kris Nardello (see below)

Where: St. Stephen’s Lutheran Church, Fellowship Hall, 2500 Soquel Dr., Santa Cruz

What’s Involved:

  • Provide your own protein fiber yarn in skeins, up to 8 oz. total weight. (Protein fiber is fiber from an animal, so wool, cashmere, alpaca, mohair, yak, camel and silk qualify, as well as blends of those fibers.)  
  • We will be using several different types of acid dyes and methods of application, so small skeins of yarn (like 1 oz.) are especially good for trying out multiple techniques.
  • Many of these techniques are especially good to use with children as some of the dyes are food grade, easily available and non-toxic. 
  • You will receive a folder with complete instructions, on-line resources and vendors for purchasing materials

 What else?

  • Bring an apron, rubber gloves and plastic bags to carry home wet yarn.
  • Bring a bag lunch and drinks and wear old clothes.  


 Note: Payment is not refundable unless the class does not meet minimum enrollment.  You may sell your spot to another person.  Registration closes on June 17th.

 Yes! I want to come!!!!!

Wonderful. Fill out the form here, send to Kris with $55.00. (You’ll have a great time.)
