Color: A Freehand Approach  

Dye Workshop for Groups and Conferences

3–4 Days


Painting dye on fabric gives you direct, immediate, visual experience of colors. Real understanding of the nature of the colors we use comes from mixing them by eye. Procion MX dyes are a perfect medium for seeing the quality of colors, because they are the same on the fabric (dry) before it is washed as after. They are exciting to use because they are transparent—overlapping shows! Ann promotes each participant’s interests in particular colors, and their relationships to other colors. Basic color concepts and relationships will be discussed in terms of the actual colors produced in class.
