No Boil Black, Orange and Brown
Saturday, July 20 2019. 10:00 - 2:30
For years, I’ve found that the most annoying part of the natural dye process has been boiling my dyestuffs and immersing fabric in them while continuously agitating. Well NO MORE! At least with this particular color palate. We will be preparing the fabric and applying dyes directly to the cloth then fixing the colors in place with a single, room temperature rinse! This is one of the easiest and most accessible processes for novice and introductory dyers, but offers so many options for experienced pattern makers.
In this workshop we’ll work with three different pigments as well as a dye color modifier to create many different shades of print on fabric.
• Iron and Tannin Blacks
• Annatto Oranges
• Browns from Cutch
• Hand printed pigments with blocks
• Hand painted dyes with brushes
• All materials and supplies provided.
