Why is it so difficult to find classes in dye techniques?
I often feel (as many craft/hobby dyers feel, I suspect) that I'm doing a lot of floundering to no purpose. Many techniques in dye work would be 100% more understandable if someone SHOWED you how, rather than having to read about it. But I can't find classes. I've checked the university, the technical school, local fabric shops... nothing. And when you search, it's hard to know where to look -- art department? sewing classes? I found out that the design classes at the UW are under the "School of Human Ecology" -- yeah, I needed to be psychic to figure that one out. Why is it so hard to find instruction on this topic?
