Dye Painting With Precision

Dye Workshop for Groups and Conferences

3–5 Days


Students will paint dyes on cotton and silk in this class and learn how to use the dyes in a medium to thin consistency with the emphasis on control of detail and shading. We will practice mixing exact colors and values and paint a sampler of various precision painting techniques that work best with this painting medium. The students will then paint designs of their own choice on blocks or on a whole cloth quilt depending on the length of the class.
