Learn how to paint with dye! This workshop is designed for anyone who loves color. Unlike paint, dye chemically bonds to fabric leaving its surface quality unchanged. Participants will learn to measure and mix dyes with sodium alginate, a natural thickening agent that allows the maker to use incredible control to achieve detail with the dye. Pair that with watercolor techniques for incredible results. See how transparent colors can be layered for varying effects. At the end of the class, each participant will have 3 yards of hand painted fabric ready for any fiber project. *Consider registering for Sewing Basics on February 12th and use the fabric to create a throw pillow!
