    Low Immersion Dyeing - Palette Builder

    I started using hand dyed fabric so that I could get specific colors for my upcoming projects. I mostly used batiks at first.  Hand dyes are one of the most favorite parts of my processes. It is so easy, fast and it brings the chemist out in you!  You get to mix colors just as a color engineer does! We will be referring to a great book "Color by Accident" by Ann Johnston. It is like a color bible with so much information for dyeing processes.

    In this class, you will learn the techniques of how to dye your own fabric with little water and in the least amount of time.  We can manipulate the fabric to get different markings or have your pieces a solid color.  We will be using Procion MX dyes, which are versatile and simple to use.  We will be using all safety equipment when creating our projects.

    If you are a quilter or a textile enthusiast, you will find this class chocked full of information and get you started on your own color palette for your upcoming projects.  No previous dyeing experience necessary!     About the instructor: Deb is an artist with an extensive background in textiles and quilt making. Recently, she has been exploring surface design and multi-media in her artwork. She is a naturalist and environmentalist at heart. Her current body of work explores satellite imagery and creating ‘false-color’ artistic depictions of remote sensed satellite images or Geographical Information Systems. She has eight quilts in her “Earth in Three Bands: R, G, B” Series: The Painted Desert, Eye of Sahara, The Great Salt Desert, Susitna Glacier, The Grand Canyon, Galileo Inspiration, The Great Lakes and my latest Rocky Mountain Trench. The vivid colors and their outstanding variations are what first drew her to these representations. She is also interested in activism and has been juried into the “OurStory” traveling exhibit about civil rights. Her pieces feature quilts celebrating the contributions of Martin Luther King/Rosa Parks and Sitting Bull “Lakota Warrior”. She has started a new series of work combining natural dyes and Shibori techniques. She uses rusted hand dyed fabric dipped into indigo; manipulating the fabric with an assortment of Shibori techniques has led to this series with Sashiko hand stitching for finishing numerous pieces. She creates most of the fabrics she use in her design process. she use surface design techniques, hand-dyeing and painted fabric, plus digital manipulation of images printed on fabric. She enjoys the challenges of creating original artwork that combines her passions and interests.
