In this four hour workshop we will explore indigo dye and chemically reactive Procion MX dyes, with a brief explanation of the chemistry involved in order to understand why changes to the recipe or procedure have the effects they do on the end product. We will also practice various Shibori folding techniques, immersion dyeing, and ice dyeing. Participants will fold and dye their choice of a rayon scarf, a rayon sarong, or two yards of cotton that may be used in quiltmaking included in the price of the workshop, with the option to dye additional pieces for an added fee. No previous experience is required. Students should bring gloves and protective eyewear and wear clothing they don’t mind getting dye on.
