Serendipity Silk Design Class

Wise Nature Center Beaver Creek Reserve Fall Creek
Dye an infinity length silk scarf with translucent dyes that set without chemicals or steaming. The process is very serendipitous as the dyes move across the scarf surface, coloring the silk in a random pattern. These “no fear” dyes allow you to overlay colors without becoming muddy. After your scarf is dyed, you can add a touch of metallic bling. Add your signature and wear your beautiful new scarf on your favorite summer hat or give it as a gift.
