All materials provided; $35 paid to instructor on first day This class will be an extensive foray into the world of dyes and resists on all types of fabric. Students will learn to work with chemical resists such as wax, potato dextrin and gutta, as well as mechanical resists like wrapping, clamping, stitching, silk screen or airbrush and color discharge. The class will also introduce students to fiber reactive dyes for cotton or silk, acid dyes for silk and polyester dyes for synthetics. The fun to be had is endless. The results will amaze you. Mary sets up different stations and exercises to work through that demonstrate the various processes. Your last session is creating a final project using any of the demonstrated methods. These four-week sessions are open to both beginners and more advanced practitioners. For those who’ve been through the sessions before – you can treat this as open lab and work on your own projects.
