Fiber Reactive Dyes with Shabd
Learn the process of Dyeing with Shabd, one of our generations leading dye-artists. In this 3 week class, Shabd will teach you the basic procedures for dyeing with Procion dyes, by immersion, painting and tie-dye, 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.
No experience necessary. Our classes are designed to focus on a learned skill rather than a final product. At TAC, our mission is to provide skills and knowledge for a lifetime! All necessary materials are included for swatch making. Any additional fabrics and materials will need to be supplied by the student based on their vision. Also, we have Open Studio time for students to put their new knowledge to practice.
Sundays 2:00 - 6:00PM, October 16 - October 30
