Dyeing to Explore
Painting and Printing on Fabric

Using thickened dyes, and a variety of tools, including developing some silk screens in class, we will spend a glorious four days printing and painting fabric with thickened Procion MX fiber reactive dyes. There will be time to experiment and to spread dyes to your hears content. This class is limited to 4 students to allow lots of room to move around and receive personal attention.
