Sue Cortese Workshop – Snow/Ice Dyeing
January 21, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm$50.00 – $60.00
In this class, we will explore the serendipity that is snow/ice dyeing. We will be using Procion MX Fiber Reactive dyes and either snow or ice to help disperse and distribute the dyes onto the fabric. We will explore different folding and scrunching techniques to see the textures that they create in the dyeing process. This dyeing technique gives the fabric a watercolor type effect. When snow is not available, ice can be used as a substitute. This process is not for the control freak…the person who wants to controlled outcomes or doesn’t handle a bit of messiness. Dyes, auxiliary chemicals and supplies are provided as part of a kit fee. Fabric can provided upon request prior to class. Students will still need to provide containers and other supplies. Samples of snow dyed fabric are below.
Class length: 3 hours.
