Saturday, January 13, 11am - 2pm Having just the right fabric to work with makes your fabric collage, quilt or sewing project so much more fun! But finding that perfect piece of fabric isn’t always easy. Earlier in my career, I dyed my fabric with fiber reactive dyes and I loved the process of seeing the dye move through the fabric and create rich saturated color. It was easy to create the perfect fabric. But fiber reactive dyes have a down side. They are easily airborne and toxic in nature. Today I work from a small studio in my home and both safety and space consideration rule out the use of dye. When looking for an alternative, I discovered acrylic inks, pencils and blocks. They are a wonderful substitute for dye. In this class you will be coloring your own fabric using acrylics that are perfectly suited to fabric. You will explore a variety of techniques to create both patterned and solid fabric. You will create a fabric bundle in the analogous colorway of your choice and you will leave class with a variety of related fabrics in a cohesive palette ready for your next project. You will love working with the one-of-a-kind fabrics you have created. It’s a great way to elevate any project. Classes are 3 hours. Materials provided include: PFD (prepared for dying) fabric, palettes, spray bottles, acrylic inks, pencils and blocks. Please wear clothes you don’t mind getting stained!
