Saturday, August 14
10 am - 4 pm (includes lunch break)
Instructor: Rena Magolnick
Tuition: $60 (Tuition $50; Dye supplies $10)
Minimum: 2 students Maximum: 8 students
Come have fun playing with color. No previous experience needed. You will use powdered fiber reactive dyes to add permanent beautiful color & patterning to your fabric using an ice- dyeing technique. Any natural fiber can be dyed with this type of dye (cotton, linen, rayon, bamboo as well as silk) with colorfast results.
The instructor will provide the dyes & auxiliary chemicals needed and a list of resources. A list of materials for students to bring to class will be provided with paid registration.
NOTE: This workshop will be held outdoors if the weather is good. If the weather does not cooperate, we will move indoors, space permitting. When working with powdered dyes it is always necessary to wear a dust mask and keep a good amount of space between students in order to prevent dye powder from landing on someone else’s project. In this time of Covid-19, in order to keep everyone as safe as reasonably possible the instructor expects all participants to wear a face mask & observe social distancing. Thank you for your cooperation.
