Painting with Dyes • April 29

, , ,

Saturday, April 29, 10 am – 4 pm

Candy Kuehn

Let loose with color painted on cotton, rayon, linen, and other cellulose fibers! Gain control with thickened MX Procion dyes so you can confidently paint on fabric. Learn a wide foundation of knowledge including different ways to measure dyes and then add thickener to vary the viscosity of the dyes from watercolor painting to thick paint dyes for stenciling. Experiment with brushes, squeeze bottles, stamps, and pre-made Thermofax stencils and then learn two different ways to set the dye paint on the fabric. Open to all levels, no previous-experience with fabric dyeing required. Wear comfortable shoes and clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty! Materials fee $40, payable to the instructor at the time of class.
