Low Water Immersion Dyeing

Instructor: Pamela Niebauer

December 10

Create fabric to use in quilting and other sewing projects while learning the basics of low water immersion dyeing. This dyeing technique uses a small amount of water in shallow containers. Different ways of manipulating fabric and applying dyes produce a variety of effects including textured fabric using a single color, relaxed shibori (with one or more colors), and wonderful multi-colored pieces.

Botanical Printing & Dyeing with the Seasons

Instructor: Lisa Binkley

2 Sessions: December 13 & 14

Have fun while learning to use local plant materials to add beautiful colors and patterns to fabrics. We'll explore which local plants create the best colors and patterns, how different natural fabrics take colors differently, both eco-printing and dyeing techniques, and safe and sustainable dye practices. Each student goes home with a beautiful bundle of eco-dyed and/or printed fabrics for use in their own stitching projects. In the first session, we will mordant the fabrics which will create more vibrant and lasting colors from the process. Each session will be unique in the mix of plant materials and techniques used.
