Create Landscape Texture With Dye

Dye Workshop for Groups and Conferences

3–5 Days


Ann will briefly review the basics about using Procion MX dyes for low-water Immersion dyeing, but the focus of the class will be painting and printing for textures and color fields. Participants will work directly on fabric, using thin and thickened dyes, rollers and paintbrushes to make unique designs on fabric. Complex colors will be created when transparent colors overlap. A variety of tools will be used to create sky, stone, wood, forest, and other landscape textures. The resulting fabric has the original hand of the cloth and is highly light and wash fast.
