Dancing Colour Silks is Offering a course in Microwave Dyeing with Fibre Artist Evi Blueth:
October 29, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm$160.00
This workshop is for anyone (over 13) who enjoys playing with colours and experimenting with a few different techniques using Jacquard Silk dyes/No previous fibre art or drawing experience is required.
I will provide all the materials. Each student will have one piece of silk to experiment with, and 2 silk scarves to complete, a choice of sponges, paint brushes and many colours of dyes pre-mixed and ready to use. I will provide the microwave for heat setting, as well as 3 ironing stations to heat set the dyes. I will demonstrate each step, including the correct way to heat set and iron your masterpieces so they don’t burn and the colours are dyefast.
Each person will be able to complete and return home with two exquisite hand- made silk scarves.
