Intro to MX Dyes • February 2; ONLY 2 SPOTS LEFT!

, , ,

Thursday, February 2, 10 am – 1 pm

Kristin Lawson

Learn the basics of how to use MX-type dyes to dye plant fibers such as cotton, linen, or rayon. Start out by dyeing a beautiful cool or warm color wheel. Next, dye a dark to light value gradation of a single color. Wrap up by dyeing a set of fabrics that beautifully blend between two complementary colors of your choice to make some gorgeous neutrals. Learn a dyeing technique that results in a crinkled color look on the fabric, and discuss how to achieve a smoother color as well. Gain the confidence and skills to manipulate MX dyes to achieve desired results for many future fiber arts projects. Great for beginners! Materials fee of $15, payable to the instructor at time of class.

Instructor Bio:

Kristin Lawson (she/her) is a lifelong fiber enthusiast. Focusing mainly on dyeing fabric and quilting, she’s also quite taken with crochet, knitting, French beaded flowers, woodturning, and dyeing yarn. Since taking a beginner dyeing class in 2008, she has dyed hundreds of yards of fabric and sees no end in sight. She has taught dyeing classes and given demonstrations at Textile Center and for various local quilt guilds. She has developed dyeing techniques that will give you predictable and repeatable results for those that prefer a more expected outcome. For those that instead love mucking about and surprises, learning the fundamentals of dyeing paves the way to successful playtime.
