 In this fun-filled weekend intensive, I will teach you the basic procedures for dyeing with Procion dyes, by immersion and direct dye methods, with both cellulose and protein fibers. You will learn various tying, dying and shibori techniques, as well as basic color theory and design concepts for dying. It will be fun, and colorful and bright! Discover the dyer in you and design your own dye patterns! Students will focus on swatches to perfect technique and in the last class work on individual projects.

 

 

COLOR THEORY WORKSHOP

(4 Sessions)

In this 4 week class students of all levels will gain confidence using Procion (fiber reactive) dyes with all the color options they have to offer! Like other media, dyes also have their own color theory concepts. This class will take students through immersion dyeing, direct application, tie-dye, hand painting, and basics on dyes, chemicals and additives while focusing on how to mix and blend colors to get your desired affects. All lessons will be learned through fun projects that students can take home with them. This is the perfect class for those working in design who want more conceptual tools under their belt, as well as helpful for silkscreeners and painters who want more control over their colors and materials.

The second day will focus on advanced techniques and  personal projects, and students are encouraged to bring their own garments.
