About This Class

A great way to entertain children!  Let them dye their old (or new) nylon socks in your kitchen using perfectly safe ingredients and th family microwave.  All you need is a sachet of Kool-Aid, some warm water and a spoon!

Also great for adults.  Spinners and knitters can dye wool and silk fibre and yarn. 

So find the Kool-Aid and get into colour!
