Color by Design: Dye Painting and Printing

Dye Workshop for Groups and Conferences

5 Days

ALL LEVELS: For those who are ready to make their own marks on fabric.

Imagine using all the colors you love as you create your own unique yardage. The flow of dye on the fabric can be controlled without using wax or other resists, so Procion MX dyes can be applied with brushes and rollers, stamps and blocks, stencils and screens without needing heat or steam. They leave no residue of paint on the surface. Varying the colors, values and consistency of the dyes allows an infinity of results. Ann will introduce and demonstrate all the basic surface design techniques and help participants to adapt them to a personal working style and their specific design interests. She will also demonstrate how surface techniques can be combined with low-water immersion dyeing.
