Dyeing to Begin

This two-day course will cover:

·         Working with Procion dyes – a brief introduction to colour

·         Using exchange dyeing to create a stash building rainbow of 36 fat quarters

·         Using gradation dyeing in one colour to create fabrics that range from dark to light

·         Layered dyeing and ice dyeing in containers to create wonderful multicoloured textural cloth

With a maximum of 6 students you’ll get lots of one to one support, group demonstrations and detailed class notes. The class will run from 9.30am to 4.30pm each day with the studio opening at 9am. You will finish the weekend with a hand dyed stash of 60 fat quarters and an understanding of how to use Procion dyes safely and effectively in your own home.

The workshop cost is £150 payable on booking. This includes hot and cold drinks, biscuits, fruit and a simple lunch each day. All the materials (except fabric), media and equipment needed for the workshop will be provided.
