one 2.5 hour class // $100 + some supplies
The focus of this workshop is exploring pattern, color and imagery thru tie-dye/resist dyeing using dyes on both cellulose based fibers, namely cotton, linen, rayon, as well as protein fibers such as wool or silk.
Working with these natural fibers, you'll learn simple tying, binding and wrapping techniques that will create controlled-yet-not, patterns of color. Beginners and pros alike will be able to experiment with pattern and color and develop a unique style of dyeing.
Students will work with the most ecofriendly and colorfast of all synthetic dyes and be taught safe studio procedures as well as how to make an array of colors from the primaries.
