This exciting workshop has been developed for quilters, stitchers, mixed media artists and everyone in between. You will learn basic colour mixing theory using Procion MX dyes. Then make simple colour gradations, colour to colour runs and develop a range of fabrics and threads using a planned palette showing value, tints and shades.
You will learn how to prepare threads for dyeing by skeining and tying to keep them from tangling, what fabrics to use for dyeing and easy ways to rinse and wash your fabrics. Dye recipes and excellent written step by step instructions will be provided and there will be a focus on safe studio habits. You will have an opportunity to ask Susan questions at anytime and you may choose to download the video for viewing at your convenience. Join Susan for a fun filled, colourful workshop that shows you how to create gorgeous hand dyed threads and sumptuous fabrics!
Shown here are samples of the type of fabric and threads you can make from this class:
