Subtractions & Additions
Elin Noble, Instructor
Dates: July 26th – 30th, 2021 (9am-4pm)
We will explore what happens when color is repeatedly added and removed through sequential shibori techniques. The cloths produced are charged with luminosity, and display sophisticated color nuances and visual complexity. We will use the Procion MX fiber reactive dyes, acid dyes, and thiox as the discharge agent, on cellulose fibers (cotton, rayon, Tencel, hemp and linen) as well as silk. We will cover the basics: learn why the different products are used and when to use them. We will also talk about safety, color mixing, fabric selection and preparation.
All Levels welcome! (Some reactive dye experience helpful)
