Dyeing the Color Wheel with Daren Redman
SESSION 4 (Quilt Fest Weekend including one class) Aug. 30
Daren Redman will be teaching this hands-on class with Procion MX fiber reactive dyes. Students will be dyeing provided cottons in 1/2 yard lengths in zip-loc bags on a table inside the fiber studio. They will work from recipe cards to create red, blue, yellow, green, orange and purple fabric to take home to use in wall art, home decor projects or wearables. While the fabrics are setting, Daren will lecture about the dyeing process, how to wash out the fabrics at home and explain her hand-dyeing resources. Students will take home six beautiful hand-dyed fabrics, which they created themselves, in this workshop.
Students will need to bring:
- An apron
- Heavy dish washing rubber gloves
- A dish tub (dollar store is fine)
- cotton or linen napkin, new, upcycled, or antique
- Lunch and a beverage!
