Hand-Dyed Fabric Explained

Lecture

Ann will use slides to show and explain in detail all the fabric dyeing techniques she uses, low-water immersion variations and many surface design processes. She will refer to the use of hand-dyed fabrics as design elements in quilts, but the emphasis will be on how the fabric was dyed. Many pieces of fabric are shown in The Quilter's Book of Design, Expanded 2nd Edition, Color By Design and from the most recent version of Color by Accident, her DVD Exploring Low-Water Immersion Dyeing. She will bring a pile of fabric for the audience to examine and will answer all questions about processes.
