Dye Lab Weekend Workshop $325


Fri Jan 27 2023 at 05:00 pm to Sun Jan 29 2023 at 04:00 pm


Manitou Art Center | Manitou Springs, CO

Spend the weekend with me and learn how to thicken natural dyes and mordants to create pattern and texture on the surface of fabric. We will briefly learn how to apply the dyes to the fabric using surface design techniques such as painting, stamps, thermofax and monoprinting to create pattern, color and texture. We will use various fabrics to create samples and explore how the different types of fabrics affect the color and design. We will make samples and participants will walk away with enough different samples to create a reference binder of the various techniques and fabrics.
This class is about having fun while learning something new and experimenting with the process. It is a good class for sewists, quilters or anyone curious to know how to create their own unique fabric.
All experience levels welcome.
