Creative Play Fabric Dyeing Workshop

Class Length: 6 hours


Join me for a day of creative play exploring a wide range of surface design techniques on fabric using fiber reactive dyes. Try your hand at dye painting, orizomegami, simple shibori, fabric marbling and more.

Throughout the day I will demonstrate a number of techniques, and give you ample time to experiment with each.

I will bring the dyes, pipettes, brushes, stamps, string and all the other equipment. You bring fabric and a sense of exploration.
