Event Details

Class description:

In this workshop we will learn to make and use thickened dyes as a base for printing with a silk screen. Thickened dyes do not change the hand of the fabric, allowing the fabric to remain soft and supple despite repeated applications, plus thickened dyes are transparent, so layers of dye will change intensity, value and colors, giving the artist a wide range of possible uses for their created cloth. We can also use soy wax as a mask on the screen adding even more possibilities to create amazing cloth.

Kit Fee – $30 including dyes, alginate as thickener and chemicals, 2 printed fabrics for dyeing and soy wax for applying to the screen
