Tuesdays & Wednesdays | 6:00 – 9:00pm | $380
February 5 – 13, 2019
Explore silk dyeing techniques to create colorful prayer flags and scarves.
Discover the magical, colorful world of silk dyeing and batik. Spend four evenings (plus optional open studio time on weekends) learning about color, surface design, silk painting, wax resist, shibori, and other silk dyeing techniques, culminating in a final prayer-flags project. Dyes used during class are appropriate for silk and wool, as well as fabric blends that contain silk and wool. Finished pieces will be dry cleaned to remove wax, and then dye set. (Please budget an additional $10 per piece for dry cleaning.) The materials fee includes seven scarves/fabric pieces, with the option of purchasing more fabric from the instructor. This class is limited to six students.
PLEASE NOTE: Class is at the Stone Building. Open Studio work times will be available on weekends – dates and times: almost every Friday from 1 pm to 5 pm and almost every Saturday and Sunday from 12 noon to 5 pm.
