FABRIC DYEING

EXPLORING COLOUR

Dyeing your own fabric is a little addictive and a whole lot of fun!  Every piece of dyed fabric is an exciting surprise.  Even though we will work with a limited dye palette, you’ll be amazed by the variety of colours that can be produced. We’ll be spending time learning and experimenting with colour theory. After dyeing, you’ll have a much better understanding of why certain colours work well with others. Get a taste of fabric dyeing in this introductory class.

MORE DYEING ADVENTURES - TEXTURE

This class is a follow up to the Exploring Colour class. In this session, students will learn how to mix dye concentrate and the other Chemical solutions. Students will be folding, rolling, scrunching and playing with a variety of tools to create texture on their fabrics. Students will be dyeing 18 Fat Quarters (4.5 meters) of fabric. Additional FQ will be available for purchase at $5

COLOUR WHEEL - 2 WAYS

Continue the exciting process of Dyeing your own fabrics! In this class we'll focus on creating 2 colour wheels of dyed fabrics using 2 different dye colours. We'll look at some basic colour theory and after dying these 18 Fat Quarters, you'll have a better understanding of why certain colours work well with others.

ICE DYE ADVENTURES

Have you seen my snow dyed fabrics that I've posted on social media?  Want to try it for yourself?  I'm going to record and prepare an on-line class that you can watch at your leisure. I'll also have some kits made up (fabrics, dyes and chemicals) so you can easily try snow dyeing for yourself.  I'll keep you posted on the development of this class.
