Resist Dye On Wool By Carol Lebaron
October 26, 2018 through October 27, 2018
Resist Dye on Wool This workshop explores the beautiful characteristics of acid dyes on wool and silk. We will use simple immersion dye and resist techniques in the hot dye pot, which causes wool and silk to hold a shape. You will create an assortment of samples to generate ideas and methods to follow up in your own work. All fiber artists will find something for their own work.
