Welcome to Lynn's School of Cool

Ice dyeing is the process of using ice and powdered dyes to create incredible colors and patterns on fabric, clothes, and home décor. The melting ice randomly spreads the dyes on the fabric, leading to fantastic and unique results each time! From fiber artist, teacher, and author Lynn Koolish, this course will show you everything you need to know about ice dyeing.

Begin your ice dye journey with a comprehensive handout and a list of all tools and supplies needed. Lynn guides you through an overview of the ice dye process and the basics of applying the dye. Discover how colors split, mix, and blend as you learn to use tools and props to control where the colors go to make patterns and textures. Lynn then dives deep into techniques for folding, tying, and gathering the fabric to get specific designs and motifs. After the dyeing, you'll learn how to process the fabric.
