Study Guide led by: Charlotte Lee with videos from Felicia Lo’s courses.

Join us for the Acid Dyeing Basics Study Guide at the School of SweetGeorgia! Work through content from Felicia Lo’s course: Dyeing Intentional Colour!

Dyeing Intentional Colour and Dyeing Complex Colour courses are among the very first few courses Felicia designed for the School, and she keeps no secrets about the magic of acid dyeing. In the SOS forums, she has supported many new dyers on their colourful hand-dye journey, where we love seeing the gorgeous colours our members have created and shown in their posts. If you are also intrigued by the beauty of hand-dyed yarns and fibres, or simply want a guide to learn to dye, join us! Start from the very basics—from setting up a dye space and mixing dye stock solutions, to finishing up hand-dyed yarns and fibres. Let’s dye some magic!

All of the fun chat and study group notes can be shared over in the SOS forums group. On Instagram, tag your posts with #sosdyeing and #schoolofsweetgeorgia.
